Read full description of the books I'm Ready for My Movie Contract: A Get Fuzzy Collection:So far this century, there have arguably been three breakout hits on the comics page-The Boondocks, Get Fuzzy, and Pearls Before Swine." -San Francisco Chronicle
* Get Fuzzy was named Best Comic Strip of the Year in 2002 by the National Cartoonists Society and now appears in more than 500 newspapers worldwide.
Satchel, the ever-hapless Shar-pei-Lab mix in the Get Fuzzy gang, is the star of I'm Ready for My Movie Contract: A Get Fuzzy Collection, inspired by his hero, Wonder Mutt. Rounding out this not-so-warm-and-fuzzy cast is Rob Wilco, a single, mild-mannered ad exec, and Bucky Katt, a highly strung, bucktoothed, laid-back-eared Siamese with an eye for mischief, an obsession with monkey pizza, and a neurotic fear of beavers. Together they form one crazy troupe for fun and mayhem.
* Three books, Bucky Katt's Big Book of Fun, Blueprint for Disaster, and Say Cheesy, have been New York Times best-sellers.
Read information about the authorDarby Conley is an American cartoonist best known for the popular comic strip Get Fuzzy.
Conley was born in Concord, Massachusetts in 1970, and grew up in Knoxville, Tennessee.
While in high school in 1986, he won a student cartooning competition. During his Senior Year at Doyle High School (now South-Doyle High School) in Knoxville, Conley was voted 'Most Talented' by his graduating class. He attended Amherst College, where he studied Fine Arts, drew cartoons for the student newspaper, played rugby, and was a member of an all-male, jazz-influenced a cappella group, the Zumbyes. (Fellow cartoonist alumni of Amherst include FoxTrot creator Bill Amend and the late John Cullen Murphy of Prince Valiant fame.)
Like Rob Wilco, the human protagonist in Get Fuzzy, Conley is an enthusiastic rugby union fan, playing during college and sustaining several injuries that failed to diminish his passion for the sport.
Before becoming a cartoonist, Conley held a wide array of jobs: elementary school teacher, art director for a science museum, lifeguard, and bicycle repairman. This eclectic collection of professions is reminiscent of those held by Douglas Adams, whom Conley has mentioned as a comedic influence.
Conley, an animal rights activist and vegetarian, lives in Boston.
