The Weingartens find fulfillment through 'the funny papers'
A once-rocky relationship between father and son has been transformed into a collegial collaboration for Pulitzer Prize-winning writer Gene Weingarten and his son Dan. The two have found a common interest and have forged a new bond thanks in large part to the creation of their new comic strip "Barney & Clyde."
Drawn together Article | Two weeks ago, my reprobate son and I launched "Barney & Clyde," a syndicated daily comic strip that appears in The Washington Post and other newspapers. Dan is now 25; we've been working on the strip together for the last five years. The story behind this collaboration is complicated, as father-and-son things often are. A good place to start might be the day he punched me in the face.
