Jolly Blackburn

Knights of the Dinner TableTM was accidentally created by Jolly R. Blackburn way back in 1990 as 'filler' for his small press magazine, Shadis. It was something of a 'creative burp' and Jolly really didn't give it much thought. Perhaps that's why he was just as surprised as anyone that soon KODT was overshadowing everything else he'd ever done and that the created was now controlling the creator. The Knights have gone far beyond anything Jolly or the D-Team (David Kenzer, Brian Jelke, Steve Johansson, and Barbara Blackburn) ever imagined. In 2006, Jolly was inducted into the Hall of Fame. Now, with over 207 issues and over 60 trade paper backs under their belts, it's been a wild ride and he looks forward to seeing where the Knights take us all next.
