This week MUTTS will be celebrating its 20th anniversary! The original strip (pictured above) ran on September 5, 1994. Starting this Friday, Patrick is reprising his first strip. Twenty years ago to the day, Charles Schulz sent the comics page from his own local paper to Patrick. Upon it he scrawled ‘Good start!’ in reference to MUTTS. What an incredible thing for Patrick’s hero to do for a young cartoonist.
This Sunday’s strip — September 7, 2014 — will be a tribute to the first MUTTS Sunday page. Of course we will be sending these strips to your inbox through The Daily MUTTS email, as always. And we’ll also offer them as signed, limited edition museum prints. Stay tuned for details on that soon!
