Sal A Mander

Sal A Mander, the popular cartoon character who graced the pages of The Aspen Times for much of the 1970s and ’80s, has returned to the Aspen Times Weekly. He appears every Thursday in the Weekly’s opinion section.

Sal’s creator, Chris Cassatt, is the editorial cartoonist for The Aspen Times daily. He is also the “lead dog” of the team that produces the comic strip “Shoe.” Along with cartooning partner Gary Brookins, he also does the illustrations for Dave Barry’s humor column.
