From Ohio History Central
In March 2006, Lyndhurst, Ohio, resident Terri Libenson began to write and draw a cartoon strip. Called "The Pajama Diaries," the strip follows Jill Kaplan, an artist raising two children at home. In 2006, King Features began to market the strip, and by July 2006, more than twenty newspapers had begun to print the daily comic. Libenson hoped to show the difficulties and fun of raising a family in the modern world. Unlike many other comic strips, Libenson intends her characters to age with the passage of time.
