Cartoonist Keith Knight reminds us that not only has his syndicated comic strip Knight LIfe lasted two years, it has a book collection coming out, The Knight Life. In a press release, Knight joked at his relief the strip had lasted this long:
“The bottom fell out of the economy just as my strip launched. And I became a first-time father one month later…I figured if I can make it through these first coupla years, I can make it though anything.
The 200-page collection hits in June and includes strips that never made it to print due to “risqué” content.
