RIP Jeff Millar
The well-known comic strip writer (Tank McNamara) and movie reviewer Jeff Millar has passed away.
Millar, and artist Bill Hinds, created Tank back in 1974 and quickly carved out a nice niche for itself as one of the few successful sports-based cartoons at a time when sports was fast becoming a national obsession.
Tank was always a top-notch strip. Millar had a playful and punny sense of humor and Hinds was a great draftsman.
That they managed to keep the strip going for 38 years is quite an accomplishment.
Here's the obituary from the Houston Chronicle, where Millar used to work. It details a lot of his non-comics accomplishments, many of which I was previously unaware.
