“Phables” ran in the Philadelphia Daily News from 2005-2007.
In it, cartoonist Brad Guigar created full-page comics talking about his life in the city. When Daily News readers wrote back sharing their own stories, Guigar subsequently turned those tales into more “Phables.”
The resulting series is a rolling conversation about life in the City That Loves You Back told from a variety of perspectives and “attytoods” that are anything but similar — yet all distinctly Philadelphian.
