Dennis the Menace, by Marcus HamiltonDennis the Menace, by Marcus Hamilton

Marcus Hamilton was born in Lexington, North Carolina. After getting his degree in commercial art, Hamilton started to work for an art studio and did freelance work on the side. He was a regular contributor for the Saturday Evening Post and Golf Digest, and he has also designed covers for U.S. News and World Report, Doubleday, Scholastic Publications and Changing Times Magazine. Hamilton became more and more unhappy with the technological advancements and the use of computers in the graphics field. Fortunately, 'Dennis the Menace' creator Hank Ketcham wanted to retire from his comic. This was a great opportunity for Hamilton. After a long apprenticeship, Ketcham handed over the daily 'Dennis' strip to Hamilton in October 1995. The Sundays are drawn by Ron Ferdinand.
