Artists Who Read Chesterton

Don't you think it would be cool to have a comic strip using Chesterton as the main character? Show him forgetting where to go, having Frances straighten his clothes, wield his swordstick here and there...I think it would be quite fun.

Now, we just need an artist who thinks so, too.


  1. Wasn't there a derivative piece called "Gilbert" (after Dilbert) in one of the issues of Gilbert magazine? July of 2005, I think.

  2. You are right, it is even on line at

    But I was thinking of a whole book, kind of like a Peanuts book, or Garfield. I want lots and lots of Chesterton!

    But you are right, Ben Hatke made a good start.

  3. Magazine Preview:

    Our Christmas issue -- currently at the printer -- will have a comic strip with Chesterton as the main character. by Hatke, of course.

  4. Great! Think we'll have it by Valentine's?

  5. You should have it by Candlemass. :)
