Description

Glenn McCoy's comic strip The Duplex is syndicated internationally by Universal Press Syndicate and appears in hip newspapers from Seattle to Sweden. Aside from drawing cartoons, Glenn has also served as national cartoon editor for DISNEY/ABC.COM. Every man fears a woman will invade his space-even a wimpy bachelor like Eno. Stick-skinny and hapless with women, Eno lives with his dog Fang on one side of a duplex. Theirs is a messy, manly-man bachelor pad filled with beer, salty snacks, and power tools. In "Bad Habits," the second "Duplex" collection, Eno and Fang once again star in their unique world of adventure and hilarity. Creator Glenn McCoy has won over "The Duplex's" fans by creatively exploring the eccentricities of buddies Eno and Fang. He counts among his fans cartoonist Lynn Johnston of For Better or For Worse, who has said of "The Duplex" and McCoy, "Here is a glimpse into the mind of a man who can make other cartoonists laugh and who can evoke the most cherished of compliments: Why didn't I think of that?!!"show more

About Glenn McCoy

Glenn McCoy has long been recognized by his peers as a superior cartoonist. The National Cartoonists Society (NCS) has twice named Glenn the Magazine Cartoonist of the Year, as well as Editorial Cartoonist of the Year and Greeting-Card Cartoonist of the Year. Glenn was the first cartoonist to be victorious in three (NCS) categories. His editorial cartoons have been reprinted in "The New York Times, USA Today" and "Newsweek," and appear frequently on CNN. They also have been collected in two books, "Pot Shots" and "Pot Shots 2," both dealing with Bill Clinton's years in office. Glenn was born in St. Louis and began drawing at age 4 under the tutelage of both his grandfather and his older brother, Gary. Weaned on "Peanuts" paperbacks, he pursued his interest in cartooning by drawing for his grade school, high school and college newspapers. He graduated in 1988 from Southern Illinois University with a bachelor's degree in fine arts and graphic design. After receiving his degree, Glenn landed a job as editorial cartoonist for the "Belleville" (Ill.) "News-Democrat" in his current hometown of Belleville. In 1990, he won a national talent search called "Create the Comics of the '90s." Soon after, he began doing gag cartoons for some of the top magazines around the country. In 1993, his comic strip, "The Duplex," was launched by Universal Press Syndicate, and in 1999 Universal began syndicating his editorial cartoons. Two book collections of "The Duplex" cartoons have been published by Andrews McMeel Publishing.show more
