The Flying McCoys: Comics for a Bold New World
View Preview
This zany strip enters the comic-collection scene with circus-like zeal. All that's missing is a parade of elephants and a clown-car escort. Gary and Glenn McCoy's delightfully absurd comic panel blends superheroes, office humor, huggable animals, and twisted relationships in a bizarre marriage of Gary Larson, the New Yorker, Conan O'Brien, and Mad Magazine. Put succinctly, the brothers McCoy present "comics for a bold new world." Creating a world where greeting cards heal hospital patients, police officers pull over children driving bumper cars, babies use the patch to quell the pacifier habit, and nudists find out what constitutes a streaker in their colony, the St. Louis area natives alternate writing and drawing duties for the daily panel. The brothers each have been nominated for multiple National Cartoonists Society awards, and Glenn has won in three categories. Gary McCoy's past as a comedian (he won HBO's Stand-Up Stand-Off contest for the St. Louis area in 1995) also shines through in the strip's offbeat humor. Their impressive freelance client list reads like a who's who in cartooning: Disney, DreamWorks, and Hyperion, to name just a few.

Doesn't get better than this. . . . The world of the McCoy brothers mirrors my own talking dogs at an AA meeting." --Whoopi Goldberg * Brothers Glenn and Gary McCoy, creators of The Flying McCoys, syndicated by Universal Press Syndicate, deliver their high-wire act onto the printed page by rotating duties daily. These brothers are the real McCoy. Glenn and Gary take turns writing and drawing their own panels each day. Such a balancing of efforts ensures a fresh approach to each and every McCoy cartoon panel. * The brothers' delightfully absurd take on superheroes, office humor, huggable animals, and twisted relationships is the stuff of the New Yorker, Conan O'Brien, and Mad magazine combined. * Both Glenn and Gary have been honored for their cartooning talents by the National Cartoonists Society.
