Read Bleeker the Rechargeable Dog

Sunday, January 16th, 2011

I want to give a big shout out and congratulations to my friend, Jonathan Mahood.

For the past four or five years, Jonathan has been the man behind the webcomic, Bleeker the Rechargeable Dog. Starting in 2011, Jonathan is bringing Bleeker to the printed page as he’s signed up with the King Features Syndicate and he’ll now be distributed in newspapers world wide. Whoo hoo!

For an guy like me who grew up before the internet and had to read my favorite comic strips in the paper instead of on the web, this is huge. I’m really excited for Jonathan.

If you’ve never read his webcomic, now is a great time to start because he’s kind of rewriting the strip over from the beginning now that he’ll be in the paper as well. You can read the strip daily on his website. After you read it online, give Jonathan your support and write to your local paper and ask that they include it in their daily comic section. That way, old folks like my parents can read Bleeker too.
