The City moves to The Hook

It is with great pleasure that I welcome "The City" into the pages of The Hook. When I first began publishing this cartoon in the late 1990s, I was attracted by creator John Backderf's ability to jump between political and social commentary and to illustrate both in his inimitable and always funny style. The Hook is grateful to "Derf" for moving his talents from another Charlottesville newspaper to this one.
