comic art by Bob Bindig

Bob Bindig was the creator of the cartoon characters 'Big Boy' and 'Buster Bison'. Bindig took art courses at the Buffalo Technical High School in the late 1930s. He was preparing some test drawings to apply for a job at Walt Disney, when he was inducted into the army. Bindig was sent to Korea, where he joined the U.S. Army Medical Corps, and headed up an art department for the Military Government. There he drew a wordless comic strip ('The Mischievous Twin Bears') for the local Korean newspaper.

Back in civil life, Bob Bindig took on a job as an advertising artist and he became one of the best advertising art directors in the field. It was not until the 1980s that Bindig developed his 'Buster Bison' character for the Triple A baseball franchise, the Buffalo Bisons. In 1985, Bindig retired from his advertising career to take over 'The Adventures of the Big Boy'. He drew the series until 1995, when he really retired. Bob Bindig was also a comics historian, who helped Lambiek on various exhibitions.
