Joe Giella Retires From Drawing “Mary Worth”

The legendary Joe Giella

Saturday, July 23, 2016, features the last “Mary Worth” strip drawn by the legendary Joe Giella.  After decades of incredible work, Joe is taking much deserved time away from the drawing board.

June Brigman and her husband Roy (who are currently doing the Sundays) will be creating the art for the dailies too.

Joe will still be accepting commissions for paintings and other artwork, but without the relentless syndication deadlines!  If you attend a Comic Con in San Diego or elsewhere, you might run into him.

Dialogue…More or Less

There are some Sundays that call for less dialogue.  Take a recent one, for example. Dawn has gotten her life in balance again, spreading her energy among time with Harlan, her school work, her father, and her friends.

MarybikesHere’s another example from the Olive Taylor story a few years ago.  Mary rescues Olive from drowning.  Sundays can be a great showcase for an artist’s sequential work.

June Brigman Will Draw “Mary Worth” Sundays!


Artist June Brigman will draw “Mary Worth” Sundays starting with today’s strip!
