You’ve wandered into the topsy-turvy world of Tulgey Wood, the blog of writer and historian Jim Fanning. Tulgey Wood celebrates artistry and creativity (and sometimes just plain madness): movies, animation, TV, books, comics—and of course Disney, lots and lots of true-blue, through-and-through Disney, including D23 and Disney twenty-three Magazine, and Sketches Magazine and the Walt Disney Collectors Society. Tulgey Wood is so fun, fascinating and full of frolicsome photos and facts, it’s scary. So wander through the wonder of it all, and enjoy.

Funny-Animal Comics Have Nine Lives, Thanks To Garfield

With Disney comic-books apparently dead in the water in the US, the term "comic book"now refers, for the most part, to super heroes (an association that most people unfortunately already make). There is of course always Archie but funny-animal comics are practically non-existent...until now. Thanks to that hefty kitty Garfield, funny-animal comic books make a triumphant return. Garfield guru Mark Evanier tells the tale here, and he should know; Mark is writing these new feline four-color adventures. To celebrate, here is an article I wrote for Garfield Magzazine, detailing the behind-the-scenes process of creating the Garfield and Friends Saturday morning TV show (also written by the ever-prolific Evanier).
