Comics and Commuting

Congratulations to Tom Hart, local cartoonist, educator, and creator of the comic strip Hutch Owen! Starting Monday, Aug. 14, his strip will be published in the New York and Boston editions of Metro.

That's huge.

Not only does Metro has an impressive circulation in both cities, Hutch Owen is decidedly not standard daily newspaper fare:

Hutch Owen is an outsider and sort of philosopher of the street, crying out in a corrupt wilderness against the rampant greed, cynicism, and worship of the almighty dollar in today's culture.

Tom's work has been nominated for the Harvey, Eisner, and Ignatz awards. Kudos on this latest success, Tom!
