Yesterday's Papers: A Short Conversation with Cartoonist Ron Ferdinand (Dennis the Menace)

John Adcock, at his Yesterday's Papers blog, interviews DENNIS THE MENACE Sunday comic strip artist Ron Ferdinand: 

"In 1980, I read an interview with Hank in CARTOONIST PROFILES where he mentioned that he was looking for a couple of assistants to help produce DENNIS. I sent him a few sketches of the characters, which he liked enough to start a correspondence for a few months where he sent me a few gags to rough out and ink. He then flew me out to Monterey (I lived in Queens) for two weeks after which he offered me a job."

The rest is here.
