30 Years of Sea Life in Sherman’s Lagoon

May 13, 1991 saw the first Sherman’s Lagoon appear in newspapers.

It first appeared in 1991 in the Escondido Times-Advocate
and was self-syndicated by Jim Toomey under the name of “Pacific Press Features.”

If that comic strip seems strange for a debut, understand that Jim Toomey
had planned on the strip to appear a couple weeks earlier.

As explained by Mark Johnson:

This first week of strips were intended for publication in April and May 1991.
However, the first strip actually ran on May 13, 1991. 

That first strip, and I presume the others, would eventually show up in print.

Congratulation Jim!
