Background about Chris Browne

Chris Browne was born in South Orange, N.J., in 1952 and grew up in suburban Wilton, Conn. The son of award-winning cartoonist Dik Browne, he assisted his father on the comic strips Hi and Lois and Hagar the Horrible. He contributed gag writing to Hagar from its inception in 1972.

With his father, Chris co-authored Hagar the Horrible's Very Nearly Complete Viking Handbook in 1985. When Dik Browne retired in 1988, Chris continued to write and draw the strip.

Hagar now appears in more than 1,900 newspapers around the world. It is translated into 13 languages and appears in 45 countries. The little red-bearded Viking has also appeared in advertisements for IBM, Mug Root Beer, Skol Ale and in the opening title of the Caroline in the City NBC television show. Hagar has appeared in his own CBS special and as a feature of the new Universal theme park Islands of Adventure: Toon Lagoon.

In addition to Hagar, Chris Browne has contributed cartoons to National Lampoon, Playboy, Esquire, Heavy Metal and The New Yorker. He was a contributing editor to The Funny Papers and Sarasota Magazine.

Chris' brother Chance Browne draws Hi and Lois.

Chris Browne now lives in Sioux Falls, ND, with his wife and partner Carroll Browne.
