Cullen Murphy: Cartoon County

Wednesday, October 18, 2017 - 3:00pm

Fairfield County in Connecticut  in the 1950s and 1960s was home to an amazing number of newspaper and magazine comic artists. This included people like Dik Browne (“Hi and Lois” and “Hägar the Horrible”), Ernie Bushmiller (“Nancy”), Chuck Saxon (his work appeared in the New Yorker and other publications) and John Cullen Murphy (“Big Ben Bolt” and “Prince Valiant” after Hal Foster retired). Tonight’s guest is CULLEN MURPHY, editor at large at Vanity Fair and the son of John Cullen Murphy. His new book is a wonderful memoir growing up in the house of a comic artist: CARTOON COUNTY: MY FATHER AND HIS FRIENDS IN THE GOLDEN AGE OF MAKE-BELIEVE.
