Mr. Wolf fan art is all the rage! Here’s my lil contribution. Mr. Wolf is the cartoon alter-ego of Aron Nels Steinke, a super inspiring artist and 2nd grade teacher.
All these amazing cartoonist doing their renditions of Mr. Wolf is putting my real comics to shame. Gotta get to it and do a new strip. This one is by the amazing cartoonist Katy Ellis O’Brien.

Erik! Yes, she’s totally interested. Would you email me? firstname.lastname@example.org
I’ll keep posting fan art until school gets me too busy. This week, Aron Steinke’s “Mr. Wolf,” a charming comic based on real classroom anecdotes, highly recommended reading for teachers.
Look at this amazing Mr. Wolf art done by the amazing Reid Psaltis!!! This is the coolest thing ever! Seeing this is great, especially after a tough day at school.

Review: Mr. Wolf
I really like this minicomic series by Aron Nels Steinke. There are three zines available, each one covering one year at his job at a charter school teaching 2nd and 3rd graders. It’s mostly 1-page/6-panel gags where he catches these sweet and surprising moments with kids/parents/other teachers/himself.
This is really gonna do it for you if you’ve worked with kids (like I have) or are a parent. Each minicomic (#1 through #3) covers one school year. You can see him change: he learns a lot about them and he learns about the job. Through it all the kids are surprising, and it’s clear that he cares about ‘em.
The strips are good but the format would get old if not for that slow and steady progression in Mr. Wolf/Steinke. As much as this is sorta structured as a collection of stand-alone gags, the comic is about growth and development. That’s the heart behind these great comics, and I hope Steinke is keeping that in mind as he keeps the strip going.
