Dan Wright, who formerly co-created the “Wildwood” comic for King Features Syndicate, is now co-creating an environmental strip called “Rustle the Leaf” with Dave Ponce.
More than 200 Web sites — including media and environmental ones — link to the weekly comic.
The strip’s title character is a “sagacious” reformer. Other cast members include Rustle’s wise-cracking friend Rooty the Acorn Sprout, the persecuted Dandy the Dandelion Seed, and “know-it-all” Paige Precipitation.
Wright is artist/co-writer of “Rustle” and Ponce is creator/co-writer. Ponce has been a high school teacher and ad copywriter, and now works as a consultant in the natural-products industry. He and Wright are both Indiana residents.
