Family Circus Creator, Bil Keane, Passes Awayon November 11, 2011 at 8:57 am
Love it or hate it, The Family Circus is one of the most famous and treasured newspaper comics of all time. Yes, I know many people consider The Family Circus to be corny, but the strip has had a major impact on the funny pages since its launch in 1960.
I had the pleasure of meeting Bil Keane back in 2000 at the Reuben Awards held at the World Trade Center in New York City. He was a very nice man and actually very funny in person. He was kind enough to draw me a quick sketch, which I would like to share below.
Bil Keane will most certainly be missed by many fans around the world.
