Sutliff's 'Fight the Bite' calendar

The work of local cartoonist Joe Sutliff is featured in a relatively new two-year calendar for the Fairfax County Health Department. The calendar uses characters (and some of the images) from a booklet Sutliff did for the county a few years ago on avoiding ticks and mosquitoes as part of disease prevention. But there are many new drawings, too. In fact, Sutliff tells ComicsDC that he has infused the names of several health department staffers in the newer illustrations (see if you can find them in the photos below). Sutliff added that he annually adds drawings for new editions, which are also printed in California, South America, Australia, Africa and other places. "Best part about the whole deal is that every Thanksgiving, when they go around the table, I get to say 'I am grateful for blood sucking parasites," he says.
