Default Fr McCarthy's Brother Juniper Cartoon is back!

Probably not many people would remember but Father Justin McCarthy, a member of the Secular Franciscan Order for seventy-one years, created a cartoon called Brother Juniper in the late 1950's. It ran in over 150 newspapers for thirty years and then was almost completely forgotten. It was the only religious-themed cartoon to be internationally syndicated.

A project was just started to hopefully acquaint a new generation with Brother Juniper or, at the very least, digitally archive McCarthy's work before the last few decent quality first editions are gone. These cartoons are still very relevant and funny even after collecting dust for thirty years.

Feel free to swing by and see how the project is going at www.brotherjuniper.com. New cartoons are posted to the site every couple weeks.

Oh, my goodness-this takes me back! Very cool!

I remember 'Brother Juniper' very well! I didn't know that a priest was the strip's creator!

How nice that this is being brought back!

Yaay! Thanks for creating this site and sharing it here! I have fond memories of looking through two ancient paperback collections when I was getting over a bad cold as a kid.
