Non Sequitur’s Sunday Color Treasury
By Wiley Miller
Non Sequitur creator Wiley Miller truly broke the cartoon mold when he first published his strip in 1992. This hugely popular cartoon is chock-full of witty observations on life’s idiosyncrasies. The name of the comic strip comes from the Latin translation of “it does not follow.” Each strip or panel stands on its own individual merits. Strips do not follow in a sequence and are not related. Non Sequitur’s characters are not central to the plot; the humor is.
Before it was even a year old, Non Sequitur was named the Best Newspaper Comic Strip of the Year by the National Cartoonists Society. With an ever-expanding cult following, this quirky cartoon is set in no specific time period or place. It is a whimsical yet flippant look at everyday life.
