“Monty” by Jim Meddick of Newspaper Enterprise Association will reach its 20th anniversary Friday.
The offbeat comic (originally called “Robotman”) spoofs suburbia, science fiction, tacky TV shows, and more. It stars a brainy, bumbling bachelor named Monty Montahue who shares his home with Fleshy, a hairless cat; and Mr. Pi, an extraterrestrial. The cast also includes Moondog, Monty’s beer-guzzling buddy; Loco Ohno, Monty’s nutty ex-girlfriend; and Pilsner the parrot.
