The PENMEN Comic Strip with Penman the Optimist Since 1989

Posted by

PENMEN ran in national newspaper syndication as a daily comic strip in black and white. The comic strip published in full color on Sundays in papers such as The Detroit Free Press, The Philadelphia Enquirer, and The Minneapolis Star Tribune. Even The Sun in Malaysia ran PENMEN.

The T-Shirt brand, Grin Big! incorporates much of the PENMEN color and feel seen by millions in the Sunday comics during the 1990's. The first PENMEN apparel sold with black ink on white t-shirts was in 1990. On that shirt Penman was wearing the very same t-shirt that he wears printed on Grin Big! T-Shirts today.
