About this title


This Rose is Rose comic strip collection stars the charming Gumbo family in a fantastical world all their own. The art combines dreams and reality as the stars live out their lives in sweeping fashion and the artwork begs to be cherished and collected.

There are a number of reasons cartoon legend Charles Schulz described himself as an "ardent admirer" of Rose is Rose. From its five-time nomination as Best Newspaper Comic Strip to its appearance in more than 600 newspapers, Pat Brady and Don Wimmer's cartoon creation Rose is Rose is evocative of Schulz's own revered strip where daydreams slightly blur the edges of reality.

Inside Rose is Rose: Not Just Another Sweetheart Deal, life in the Gumbo family is anything but ordinary. While gentle son Pasquale imagines toe-biting, bathtub drain--residing monsters, his mother, Rose, might morph into her leather-clad alter ego biker-chick persona, Vicki. Not to be outdone, here comes doting father and husband, Jimbo, riding in on his stallion with his romantically chivalrous ways. And let's not forget furry feline pet Peekaboo, who has fantasies of her own about her cute human counterparts.

This Rose is Rose collection features more than 40 weeks of Gumbo family amusement and artwork. Brady is the recipient of cartooning's highest honor, the Reuben Award for Outstanding Cartoonist of the Year for 2004 by the National Cartoonists Society. After two decades of sketching every Rose is Rose strip himself, Brady shifted to sharing duties to Wimmer.

About the Author:

Pat Brady began submitting strips to newspapers at age 11. He graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 1969 and created Rose is Rose ( in 1984. He lives in Sycamore, Illinois.
