Known in some countries as just “‘Dennis’” the daily syndicated comic strip “Dennis the Menace“ was originally created, written and illustrated by the late Hank Ketcham. Since intitial publication in 1951, “Dennis the Menace” has been published in over 1,000 newspapers in 48 countries.
In 2001 Ketcham’s long-time assistant, Marcus Hamilton, took over the pen from the legendary cartoonist after his death. Hamilton visited Azio Media recently while vacationing in Ocean Isle Beach.
Mr. Hamilton collects vintage “Dennis the Menace” books. While he was shopping at Azio Media he kindly drew a Dennis portrait for us.
