As you know, one of my most frequent topics is Bugs Bunny's 1980s comic strip and its relationship with the North Carolina Newspaper The Daily Times-News. I have expressed the whole story and have gone deep into research including calling the paper themselves (they thought I was a nut so they hung up). I found this article from 1976, 3 years before the strip was added to the paper. This article is a masterpiece because it expresses about two artists despite their being one. Enjoy and I will be posting more strips and historic info about this relationship soon.
