The Weird, Wacky, and Wild Ride of Captain Cartoon, Father of Bat Boy

My tenth (!) piece for Narratively just went live and chronicles the life and times of Dick Kulpa, cartoonist, one-time owner of Cracked magazine, and father of Bat Boy, the mutated mascot of the Weekly World News. The guy pursued what he loved through the difficulties and joys of life and left an offbeat legacy from his humble beginnings in Illinois.

Writing a biographical piece was a somewhat new experience to me, but I still have Cracked magazines and posters from when I was a kid and was happy to dive a bit deeper into the world of humor magazines that meant so much to me!

Read on about Mr. Kulpa’s life here!
