Scott Adams picks Justin Thompson to be the new artist for
his Mike Belkin’s syndicated comic strip Unfit.
Adams writes: “The decision was Mike’s alone, but I would have made the same choice.” Given that many suspect Belkins is just a pseudonym for Adams I guess that’s not surprising.
Adams claims that “[Justin’s] art has to appeal to every generation, particularly the generation of newspaper editors. JustinÃ¯Â¿Â½s take on the characters evokes the feel of LilÃ¯Â¿Â½ Abner (the best drawn comic of its time) while still looking current.” Looking at Justin’s entry, it actually reminded me a bit of Bill Holbrook‘s work.
Justin is also the creator of Myth-Tickle currently published on Comic Sherpa.
