In 1982, Marcia Liss began drawing cartoons and continued over the centuries to chronicle the life of Everywoman, as perceived by a suspenders-and tie-wearing cartoon character named, coincidentally, Marcia. Deserving of a 2nd and 3rd look by 2 major syndicates, but not making the final cut at either, a few of the single panels were published by the popular magazine called...uh...hmmm...well, anyway, “Today’s Chicago Woman” named the cartoonist as one of 90 woman to watch in the ‘90’s. Nobody quite knew what they were watching for, but there you have it. When not drawing cartoons, Marcia worked as Development Director for the ACLU of Illinois, raised 2 children (who are now married with kids of their own), and stayed married. She is a very serious person who worried about climate control, gun control and other control issues until she realized she had no control and concentrated instead on getting first row center seats to Liza Minnelli concerts. She currently lives in Evanston, Illinois with her husband where she draws cartoons and laughs at her own jokes.

Characterizations: funny, right on!


  1. Ah yes Marcia, I remember those.
    They were hard to fold, but very helpful!

  2. Laurie Levy says:

    That was us, except I couldn’t read the map as fast as Fred drove the car.

  3. Marian says:

    Terrific, Marcia, and better than having a GPS steer you into a lake.

  4. Betsy Pfau says:

    One of the worst fights of our marriage happened in just the way you depict!
