The Neighbors (comic strip)
Clark launched The Neighbors in 1939 with the Chicago Tribune-New York Daily News Syndicate. Similar to his earlier Side Glances (1928-1939), it explored subtle aspects of middle-class family humor. He soon added a Sunday strip, Our Neighbors, the Ripples, a title eventually shortened to The Ripples (1939-1948). The Sunday strip was dropped in 1948, but his daily panel continued until 1976.
Stephen Becker (Comic Art in America) commented, "He has never attempted to induce the belly laugh; he feels that a gently humorous reminder of something that has probably happened to his reader will suffice."
Clark received the National Cartoonists Society's Newspaper Panel Cartoon Award in 1961.
