Benny & Sid Presents Chapter 7 of the Serialized Graphic Novel The Truant Officer

The latest installment of Salem's only original online cartoon series.

The Truant Officer #7
By Glen Bledsoe

(Your City, USA) - Life is busy enough when everything goes smoothly. What drives you nuts is when something goes wrong.

Like the flat tire you got last winter when it was 12 below.

Like the bank statement which tells you your account is overdrawn when it couldn't be.

You can straighten it out, sure, but you're going have to take off from work to do it.

Being the target of unknown pranksters is galling when you've got a job to do, too.

Especially when you're an undercover Truant Officer and your job is keeping kids in school.

Leonardo (Glen L. Bledsoe), cartoonist, was born and raised in Indiana. He graduated from Indiana University with a Bachelors of Art in Fine Arts and was a student at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago for several years. Glen made his home in Oregon in the early 80's where he continues to enjoy the mild climate and lack of sales tax.

He and his wife Karen have published seventeen books together for the school library market. Glen has written extensively on the issues of technology and education for the National Education Association and other publications. When he is not creating this unique cartoon series, Glen is either teaching, writing a novel, composing music, or reading.

Those boys'll take anything that ain't nailed down and quite a few things that are.

So, Burbank got his car stolen. Neither seems to have noticed that whoever the perps are, they've started on Mickey's car--no windshield or mirror--piece by piece.
