`The Duplex,' A New Comic Strip, Starts Today In The Seattle Times

"The Duplex," by Glenn McCoy, begins today in comics pages of The Sunday Times.

McCoy, 27, is a graduate of Southern Illinois University. In 1990 he won a national cartooning contest. Since then, his editorial cartoons have appeared in The New York Times, USA Today and the international edition of Newsweek. He now is art director and editorial cartoonist for The Belleville, Ill., News Democrat.

"The Duplex" looks at the differences between women and men. One side of the building is occupied by a bachelor named Eno and his dog Fang. The new residents of the other half are Gina and her poodle Mitzi. The contrast in their lifestyles is pretty much summed up in this pair of scenes: Gina to Mitzi: "Does my purse go with my shoes?" Eno to Fang: "Does my left shoe go with my right one?"

With the introduction of "The Duplex," several comics have changed position and "U Can With Beakman" no longer will appear.
