Adam at Home by Brian Basset

Brian Basset was born in Norwalk, Connecticut, as the son of well-known sports and political cartoonist Gene Basset. While attending the Fine Arts program of Ohio State University he sharpened his editorial pencil and became a political cartoonist himself, later working at the Seattle Times from 1978 to 1994.

In 1984 he created a comic strip about stay-at-home father of three 'Adam' and his bread-winning wife. The strip, that showed strong resemblances to Basset's personal life, was renamed to 'Adam@Home' after Basset's departure from the Seattle Times in 1995. Basset continued the feature through Universal until 2009, when he handed it over to Rob Harrell.

He has since devoted all his time to 'Red and Rover', a "retro-feel" comic strip about friendship, love and loyalty between a boy and his dog, that he had created in 2000.
