In Dating Disasters 101, this e-book original gathers strips from the popular cartoon strip, Luann. Still pining for Aaron Hill, Luann accidentally agrees to a date with the reclusive, slightly socially inept Gunther. Through his non-violent resolution with two bullies at a miniature golf course, Gunther endears himself to Luann, who ends the date with a peck on Gunther’s cheek. But Luann isn’t the only one thrown into romantic mishap; her brother Brad proves opposites attract when he begins dating the cultured and intelligent Diane. Double dates and uncomfortable father-son talks ensue as the siblings grapple with their new, confusing romantic relationships.Featuring funny and revealing behind-the-scenes commentary by creator, Greg Evans.



Readers of all ages love Luann, a strip about the trials of becoming a young adult. Known for its rich characters and intriguing “what will happen next” storylines, Luann enjoys a reader loyalty rare on the comic page, consistently ranking among the top five in reader surveys. Greg Evans was voted Outstanding Cartoonist of the Year in 2003 by the National Cartoonists Society, partly for his efforts in holding up Luann as a fine example of the positive power comic strips can have. “My aim is to touch readers’ hearts as well as their funny bones,” says Evans, who’s humorously touched on serious issues such as peer pressure, drugs, alcohol and young love. “Adolescence is a very funny time—except when you’re in it.”

About the author (2012)

Born, raised, and educated in the Los Angeles area, Evans discovered at an early age that he wanted to be a syndicated cartoonist. He worked as a high school art teacher as well as a graphic artist and a promotion manager for a television station while pursuing his dream of writing a comic strip. After several failed attempts, he was inspired by the antics of his then nine-year-old daughter-and Luann was born. Evans lives with his wife in Southern California.
