Lalo Alcaraz Salutes Cartoon Jefe Lee Salem, 1946-2019, RIP

I spent the weekend to Kansas City paying tribute to Lee Salem, the comic strip editor and syndicate president who discovered so many groundbreaking comic strips that he changed the comics page forever.

I joined a memorial where Cathy creator Cathy Guiswhite and Doonesbury creator Garry Trudeau spoke, along with Lee’s son and young grandaughter.
