Somewhere in this great nation is a top-secret government agency in charge of providing aid to America's nonhuman citizenry. Perpetually overworked and underpaid, these dedicated civil servants soldier on with a dedication exceeded only by their respective passions for heavy rifles, stylish footwear, and good sturdy squeaky toys. They're not our country's best nor our country's brightest, but to all the lost and lonely creations of misguided science wandering the wild places of this country, they are a beacon of minimum-wage hope. This is their story.

The Nutz family is definitely not the Cleavers, the Waltons or the Bradys. But you'll undoubtedly recognize them anyway. Most likely, they're a lot like the family you grew up in... where the battle for the last chicken leg is comparable to the Battle of Bull Run, sibling rivalry is putting it mildly, and family values usually refers to a coupon book. Soup to Nutz by Rick Stromoski stars hard-working Roy Nutz, his loving wife Pat, and their battling brood - sons Roy-boy and Andrew, daughter Babs and rambunctious dog Rosco. Stromoski is the seventh in a family of 12 children. Growing up in such a large family has given him an especially developed sense of humor that he has expressed through drawing from the moment he could pick up a pencil. A self-taught cartoonist and humorous illustrator, his work has appeared in national magazines, children's and humor books, newspapers, licensed products, national advertising and network television. Stromoski's greeting cards have become best-sellers for several major companies. He has won four Louie Awards for outstanding greeting card design. He has been nominated for his illustration work by the National Cartoonists Society 12 times and was awarded the Reuben division award for best greeting cards in 1995 and 1998, and for magazine gag cartoons in 1999. An NCS board member since 1997, he was elected president in 2005.

When pictures of a naked corpse are left for processing, Bee’s curiosity goes into high gear. "...Like a Nancy Drew mystery adapted by Brian de Palma...He's a great illustrator, and he tells a convoluted story with economy and flair..." —Nick Hornby, The New York Times “Weirdness abounds in Shutterbug Follies—a giddy, splendid weirdness that makes the book a page-turner…It sits comfortably on a shelf between Daniel Clowes’s Caricature and Kim Deitch’s Boulevard of Broken Dreams.” —Marc Weidenbaum, The Comics Journal ➜ Email Jason Little This comic updates Monday & Thursday
