A Jumble Puzzle for Comics Fans – updated


Next week David L. Hoyt and Jeff Knurek will present the 6th Annual Jumble Guest Week.

As is their custom they have issued a promotional piece featuring images from the special guest cartoonists but not identifying them.

Now the trick is to identify who will be next week’s creators on the Jumble feature.

#1 is Crankshaft by Tom Batiuk and Dan Davis.

#5 is Baldo by Hector D. Cantu and Carlos Castellanos.

I’m fairly certain #3 is Between Friends by Sandra Bell-Lundy.

I think I know who #6 is, but not sure enough to say.

And I apologize to  the creators of #2 and #4 who I am at a loss to name.

Can you comic fans name the cartoonists set to appear in next week’s Jumble?



Per the comments below #6 is Chad Carpenter’s Tundra (who I was leaning toward).

#4 is Little Rube Goldberg by Ed Steckley!


The #2 robot-like character is still a mystery.



The mystery cartoonist has been revealed with the November 13 publication
(see Jonathan Lemon‘s comment below).

The entire puzzle can be viewed here.

#4 is Ed Steckley. I’m guessing #6 is Chad Carpenter (Tundra).

Yeah, I’m certain #6 is Chad Carpenter as well.

It was Dave Whamond of Reality Check. It looked familiar but I must say, it wasn’t much of a clue.

Jonathan – I agree about the lack of transparency in the clue, show us one of the doctors faces so we have a shot at guessing Whamond. (Though the robot makes a better promo image.)

aside: Hey Jonathan- when we gonna see an image of “Li’l Oop”, I’m dying to see him.
