Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung

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. The strip will mostly be based on original work by Appleby, which will have been translated by Berlin-based Ruth Keen. ‘Germans inexplicably enjoy [Appleby’s] humour,’ says Kasper de Graaf, chairman of Assorted Images, the artists’ company which represents Appleby.
