United Media is launching “The Knight Life” comic by Keith Knight on May 5.
The award-winning Knight is already known to cartooning fans for his self-syndicated “K Chronicles” and “(th)ink” features. He also contributes to Mad Magazine and ESPN The Magazine.
“The Knight Life” includes political and social satire, humor about daily life, and other elements. The autobiographical comic features Knight, his wife, his father, and an “odd” assortment of friends, neighbors, and strangers.
United Acquisitions Editor Ted Rall (who’s also a Universal Press Syndicate editorial cartoonist) said Knight is “one of the most successful alternative weekly cartoonists in America” now making a move into a daily strip that is “funny,” “smart,” and “relevant.”
