BLACK, Cuyler

“I’m not making fun of faith, and I don’t want people to think I  don’t take church seriously. I consider my cartoons to be playfully reverent or reverently playful….  Cuyler Black, Winnipeg Free Press, 28 May 2011.

At 17 years old, he created the cartoon strip “Furtree High” which debut in The Citizen in January 1984, and ran for twelve years. He syndicated another comic strip from 1996 to 1998 in about a dozen newspapers.
