Missoula Independent adds Josh Quick's "Camp Sleepover" comic strip
The Missoula Independent is proud to announce the addition of local illustrator Josh Quick's "Camp Sleepover" comic strip to the paper. Quick's quirky, original and instantly recognizable work debuted in the Aug. 29 issue and appears weekly in the Independent's pages.

Quick is a prolific Missoula-based designer and illustrator who has worked with local businesses, nonprofits and artists on everything from T-shirts to posters to logos. His clients include Big Dipper Ice Cream, Big Sky Documentary Film Festival, The Whizpops, Doma Coffee Roasting Company, Missoula Outdoor Cinema, KBGA, Sunday Streets Missoula and many others. His comic strip, "Camp Sleepover," has been selected two years running for City Pages' (Minneapolis/St. Paul) prestigious Comix Issue, but makes its first weekly appearance in the Indy.

"Josh is a phenomenal Missoula talent and a great addition to our paper," says editor Skylar Browning. "We're excited about helping him launch this strip to a larger audience."

"Camp Sleepover" will appear in the Indy's classified section, along with regular weekly content like Rob Brezsny's "Free Will Astrology," Amy Alkon's "Advice Goddess," Matt Jones' "Jonesin' Crosswords" and Tom Tomorrow's "This Modern World." Quick's comic will also appear on the Indy's website at missoulanews.com.
