Comic Strips: a Naughty Kitty and Young Hockey Goalie Gets Playing Time

Print More

James DeMarco grew up in Watertown and became a goaltender at age 5. It’s his life’s passion to stand between the pipes and keep the puck out of the net. Combining this with the love of cartooning Small Saves emerged in 1991 and took on a life of his own. “To play goal–then come home and draw Small Saves — is my ideal definition of a good day.” DeMarco recently added “Here’s Trouble” to his cartooning lineup, inspired by drawings he did in the 1980s when he was in high school.

  1. Great article about a really good guy doing really good work. As a cartoonist and hockey fan, I have become a keyboard-acquaintance with James. He is a wonderful ambassador for ice hockey and comic art. Given his literal lifetime as a netminder, Small Saves has big league authenticity.

    James has love for cats and this clearly shows in Here’s Trouble. I have owned cats for well over thirty years. Mr. Demarco’s work is a purr-fect process.
