By Pat Brady
Ever since Rose is Rose began, I have been one of its most ardent admirers." -Charles Schulz

When Rose is Rose creator Pat Brady and cartoonist Don Wimmer present the lives of the Gumbo family, they reveal everyday life at its most extraordinary.

* Lauded for his work on the strip, Brady received the 2004 Reuben Award for Outstanding Cartoonist of the Year by the National Cartoonists Society.
