Will Robertson sums up the appeal of Casey and Kyle like this: "It's a strip about the fun and chaos of kids." That description, though simple, gives the essence of its connection with its readers. The strip is about the things you remember about your own childhood and (for anyone with kids) the way your own kids really are.
It goes deeper than your average kid strip and builds on the dynamic that exists between an older and younger sibling: The way the oldest always gets to be the hero; the younger the bad guy. It features a cacophony of neighborhood kids, each one making his own indelible stamp on the other characters.
"When I was in High School, I got to interview Charles Schulz about cartooning and how to make my own work better. He stressed the importance of focusing, not just on a single gag, but on the larger development of characters, each with their own voice, and the crucial part which is giving them scenarios that allow them to continue to grow and develop."
As Casey and Kyle gets ready to enter its fourth year of publication, it's exciting to see the many ways that it continues to grow and develop in new and funny ways.
New Casey and Kyle cartoons are published on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.
