Luann / Comics

Imagine being a teenager for 25 years -- Luann, the title character of cartoonist Greg Evans' nationally-syndicated comic

strip, has been. Launched in 1985, "Luann" has remained high on comic strip readers' lists, consistently ranking in the top

five comics in newspaper reader surveys. Now "Luann" appears in more than 350 newspapers daily, including the Chicago

Sun-Times and San Francisco Chronicle. Evans' funny, yet honest, look at adolescence has also been compiled into several

book collections over the years.

In 2003, after six nominations, "Luann" earned Greg Evans the National Cartoonists Society's Reuben Award for Cartoonist of

the Year. Possibly his greatest recognition, though, comes from the many teenage fans who can find humor in his work, even in

the midst of their own teenage years.
