Crabgrass by Tauhid Bondia – New for ’22

Crabgrass is a comic strip set in the early 80’s about what it means to be best friends during a time before cellphones, the internet and so-called “helicopter parenting”. If you ever wonder how you managed to survive your own childhood: Crabgrass remembers.

At NCSFest a couple weeks ago Shena Wolf interviewed cartoonist Tauhid Bondia, during which they broke the news that the comic strip Crabgrass will be offered to papers for print syndication in 2022.

But that was the only timetable. We’re going to go out on a limb and say it will be very early 2022.

Our reason for making such a bold prediction is that Crabgrass is now up on the Andrews McMeel Syndication page as part of their syndicated lineup being offered to newspapers.


Crabgrass first appeared as an online comic on April 5, 2019 (or maybe in June of 2019) at GoComics (where it continues to appear) when Tauhid changed gears by putting his earlier strip A Problem Like Jamal (great in a totally different way) on hiatus to concentrate on Crabgrass.

We wish Tauhid all the best and hope the strip is a big hit with newspapers.
