Mr. Boffo and Willy `n Ethel

Experienced syndicate sales reps. Must have background selling comics to newspaper editors and publishers.

Check out our archives at and compare it to what you’ve been selling. You’ll be pleasantly surprised.

Phone positions also available. Experience is required. You’ll also represent our animated cartoons to internet markets and our classic features package, (Porterfield, Tucker, Cats with Hands, and the Best of Willy `n Ethel and Mr. Boffo) for the weekly markets.

Also need social media specialist and web design.

For decades I’ve written and drawn my three comics for the three major syndicates simultaneously: Tribune, Universal and King. I’m the Guinness Book’s most prolific cartoonist. By 2001 I published over 20,000 comics. It’s now over 50,000. In 2005, I completed my contractual obligations with the syndicates, combined my features with over 600 animations to start Neatly Chiseled Features. I believed by just doing the best and funniest comics the world would beat a path to my door. It’s taken me 15 years to realize editors and publishers have more on their plates than just finding funny comics, so in our first sales push, we’ve picked up 9 California papers and 3 more across the country. My features have always done well in popularity surveys. I think along with the Guinness Book, I’m proudest of my first book. Unclear on the concept, I was told this was the only book in the history of Little Brown Publishing to be voted unanimous approval by its board. This is hard to believe when you consider Little, Brown’s authors include just about every iconic writer from J.D.Salinger to Louisa May Alcott. But I like to think it’s true. Although there is a little tiny part of my brain that in weak moments sometimes wonders if maybe agents might just tell that to every new author. Anyway, that’s my story.
So, in a nutshell, you’ve got a great product to sell. But the downside is you’ll be fighting for space against all the major syndicates.

Looking forward to hearing from you.

PS: One more thing. I was told that before his meeting, Steven Spielberg would say “I hope no one’s unclear on the concept”, referencing my Mr. Boffo. And they asked for T-shirts.
