The ability to elicit genuine laughter from a single panel is a true art form. One name that stands out in this realm is Zanyee, a single-panel cartoon that has been making people laugh since its creation in 1991. With a unique and quirky sense of humor, Talmadge delivers comic gems that tickle the funny bone. But what makes Zanyee even more intriguing is its journey through time—having started, stopped, and started again in 2016, it’s a testament to the enduring power of humor.
Zanyee first made its appearance in 1991, created by an artist with a penchant for crafting humor from the simplest of illustrations. The charm of Zanyee lies in its single-panel format, which requires the artist to capture an entire story or punchline in a single frame. With a dedication to wit and creativity, Zanyee quickly became a beloved source of amusement for its 1.067 genuine readers.
