Monty spoofs suburbia, trashes tacky TV shows and offers absurdist commentary on everything from hosing down spider monkeys to the latest conspiracy theory. "I've tried to create the comic strip equivalent of 'Monty Python's Flying Circus,'" says Jim Meddick. "The name 'Monty' is a nod to the influence that show had on my humor. In my cartoon, just about anything can happen - this way, the ideas and characters always stay fresh."
Monty won the 2008 National Cartoonists Society's Award for Best Newspaper Strip.
Jim Meddick is a former political cartoonist, a work he began a short time after graduating from the Washington University in St. Louis, Mo., in 1983. While he was in the university, he won the Student Cartoonists Contest of the Chicago Tribune with his strip “Paperback Writer”.
