“Vic and Nat’ly cartoonist Bunny Matthews announces he has brain cancer,” Gambit

BUNNY MATTHEWS
Bunny Matthews' first "Vic and Nat'ly" cartoon as it appeared in 1982.

Two compilations of Vic and Nat’ly were published in the 1980s, featuring the flamboyant, buxom Nat’ly and greasy, cigarette-ash dripping Vic (whom Matthews said was modeled after former New Orleans Mayor Vic Schiro).
