US & THEM
Editorial cartoonist Susan Dewar (See DEWARE Susan) co-created this cartoon strip with Wiley Milton in July 1995. It was distributed by Universal Press Syndicate. It appears that Wiley Milton of “Non Sequitur” fame, held the copyright. Between March 22, 1997 and April 5, 1997, probably Monday March 31, 1997 Milton was replaced by Milt Priggee an editorial cartoonist with the Spokane Review [Washington U.S.A.]. At this point Dear assumed the copyright. The strip continued for another two and a half years until 29 August 1999.
The work on the strip was divided so that each cartoonist did it on alternate days. Dewar’s character was a middle aged career woman named Janet who appears to be a single mother. Milton’s male character was called Joe. Although the title suggests interact between male and female characters these two characters appear to almost never met, each following their own independent story arch.
