Readers of all ages love Luann, a strip about the trials of becoming a young adult. Known for its rich characters and intriguing “what will happen next” storylines, Luann enjoys a reader loyalty rare on the comic page, consistently ranking among the top five in reader surveys. Greg Evans was voted Outstanding Cartoonist of the Year in 2003 by the National Cartoonists Society, partly for his efforts in holding up Luann as a fine example of the positive power comic strips can have. “My aim is to touch readers’ hearts as well as their funny bones,” says Evans, who’s humorously touched on serious issues such as peer pressure, drugs, alcohol and young love. “Adolescence is a very funny time -- except when you’re in it.”

Greg Evans

Greg Evans created the comic strip LUANN in 1985 and has kept up with the trials of the teenager and her friends becoming young adults ever since. “It’s dramatic, funny, real and compelling,” said Evans about his comic strip.

Growing up in Los Angeles, Evans attended California State University-Northridge. After graduating, he taught as a high school art teacher in El Centro, Calif. He married his wife Betty and they taught in Australia, then spent some time traveling through Asia and the Middle East before finally settling back in the U.S. in Colorado Springs. In Colorado, Greg and Betty started a family. Greg worked as a cameraman, then as a corporate promotions manager for a TV station. Missing his native California, Evans bought a robot (no joke) and moved to San Diego, where he hired out the robot for fairs, parties and conventions all over the country. He also began a mail-order cartooning business, selling strips to school newspapers. Since college he had sent comic ideas to syndicates with no luck, but inspiration struck one day in 1984 as he watched his daughter play dress-up. He began writing a comic about a teenage girl, which developed into his current work. LUANN debuted in 74 newspapers the following year. Evans since has since received The National Cartoonists Society Reuben Award for Outstanding Cartoonist of the Year.
