Mell Lazarus, creator of the comic strips “Momma” and “Miss Peach,” Reuben award winner, former National Cartoonist Society President, novelist, playwright and great friend has passed away. Mell joined me for trips to the cartoon festivals in Rathdrum, Ireland and St. Just Le Martel in France. Mell, a born and bred New Yorker, took some light-hearted ribbing about staying at a B&B on a farm. A true professional, kind and full of humor, we’ll all miss him.
