In 1997, 21 contributors combined to create Taddle Creek. It began as a local periodical and expanded to a national scope. It expanded into graphic stories quite early in issue IV-1 Christmas 2000 with a story by Michael Cho. In issue VII-2 (12) Summer2004, Dave Lapp’s “People Around Here series began. The first illustrated cover appeared on XI-1, (19) Christmas 2007. It was done by Ian Phillips. It intrduced “Tad” a creation of Ian and Conan, who became the iconic reader of Taddle Creek. From this point on all Taddle Creek periodicals had illustrated rather than photographic covers.
