A Note from Cartoonist Duane Abel

If you are watching Christmas movies about now, a holiday movie where I play a supporting role is on all streaming services (my family and I enjoyed it on Amazon). Christmas Collision was produced by United Font Films and directed by Lana Read, who will be directing my screenwriting debut with Papermill Pond Romance, due to be in production in early 2022.


  • Duane M. Able

    "ZED" currently appears in several weekly newspapers and has been collected into Corkey Comics book publications. Duane is a proud member of The National Cartoonists Society and has been nominated for the Ignatz Award. In the summer of 2014 he wrote, directed and starred in the comedic stage play JELLY JARS. Duane travels to 100+ schools every year presenting his student assembly "Draw Your Destiny" and is a very busy keynote speaker sharing the wisdom of the Sunday Funnies and how they can be used for personal and professional development. Duane and his wife Coral are proud parents of two boys, Zackie and Clayton, and live in a small Ohio town.
