Skeeter Tales...

Local cartoon with local appeal
Minnesotans love to hate mosquitos. Joel Seibel, a local cartoonist, provides a humorous look into the lives of mosquitos in Skeeter Tales, a cartoon strip that appears weekly in the Voyageur Press's Generally Speaking section. Joel's talent and sense of humor are evident in the antics of Skeeter Tales's two pesky mosquitos. Each week's cartoon brings a new adventure for his characters.
