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.
