Shoe (comic strip)

Shoe (comic strip)

Shoe is the name of a comic strip that was written and drawn by its creator Jeff MacNelly until his death in 2000. It has since been continued by Chris Cassatt, Gary Brookins, and Susie MacNelly.

While not politically oriented in the style of strips such as Garry Trudeau's "Doonesbury", the strip often pokes fun at various social and political issues of the day, especially when Belfry makes an appearance.

The strip won MacNelly the Reuben Award for the year 1979.


Shoe deals with the day-to-day foibles of a group of newspaper employees and their families, all of whom are portrayed as anthropomorphized birds, in the fictional locale of Treetops, East Virginia.
