Dave London (right) is an award-winning cartoonist and illustrator — and active member of the National Cartoonists Society — whose clients include the Wall Street Journal, the Saturday Evening Post and Reader's Digest.

Pete Chianca (left) has been recognized with multiple awards for his humorous columns and commentary, and is also the author of the book Glory Days: Springsteen’s Greatest Albums, which is only marginally funny.

Their previous comic strip, Grey Matter, ran in more than 100 newspapers nationwide and in Canada. Pet Peeves debuted in February of 2016 and was distributed by Gannett’s More Content Now news service to daily newspapers in 260 communities in 46 states across the U.S. and Guam.


The first three years of strips were published as Pet Peeves, the book, in April 2019, with the second collection, More Social Than Distant, debuting in March 2021, and a collection of single panels, "Aren't You Finished Yet?," published in 2022. The pair also hosts the Strip Search comic strip podcast.

Both Dave and Pete live in Massachusetts, but not with each other.
