Don Martin

Ah, Don Martin, my favorite comic
artist. There is now an entry even at wikipedia. I still remember the day
when after reading many Don Martin strips I started to carefully study them —
little details like ears, eyes, teeth, etc. It’s like discovering a language.
His comics are famous for his new word creations for sound effects (so-called
onomatopoetic
words — I had no idea).

article
published shortly after his death in June, 2000, and a German
web site with samples. Here
is one of my favorite Don Martin
books:
