The ‘untold weirdness’ of cartoonist Steven Appleby’s mind was launched as a daily cartoon strip on Monday in one of Germany’s most conservative daily newspapers, the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung. Normales Leben (Normal Life) is the first daily cartoon Appleby has created and joins his weekly cartoons in the Weekend Guardian, The Times and The Telegraph.
