Originally uploaded by comics.unl

Ted Kooser contributed this single panel to an underground comic printed in 1974 in Lincoln, Nebraska. Entitled Comix Trip, it featured a wide variety of styles and stories by various local authors. Kooser drew an “interactive” cartoon that pokes fun at the fervent sports culture that persists today in Nebraska’s capitol.  An acquaintance of S. Clay Wilson, Kooser went on to win the Pulitzer prize for poetry in 2005 and  serve two terms as Poet Laureate of the United States.  He teaches at UNL.
