25 Years Later
Quibbley first enlisted with the US Army in 1984, when cartoonist Scott Wood introduced him to the military world through the pages of the European edition of Stars and Stripes. Quibbley enjoyed a long and distinguished – if not particularly heroic –
service career, entertaining the troops a long way from home with his wit and wisdom, as he stumbled from one misadventure
to the next. The comic strip ran for 10 years, spawning 8 books and a Short-Timer’s calendar.
Now, 25 years after his last bugle call, Scott Wood (encouraged by Quibbley fans all over the world) has decided that 2020 is the perfect time for Quibbley to reenlist! Enduring and endearing as ever, Quibbley, together with his old sparring partners and friends Trudy, Marvin, Sgt. Mom, Lt. McFlakey and of course his forever faithful mutt Clump, is back in the Army.
Enjoy the fun. Anything can happen!

Sadly, Scott Wood passed away in July 2020, a victim of Covid 19.
Born in Sacramento, California, in 1943, he enjoyed creating cartoons at an early age, attempting to get his first cartoon published at the age of nine. In high school, he created cartoons for the school newspaper and won a state-wide poster contest highlighting better driving through better vision. Scott attended New Mexico Military Institute and subsequently Texas Tech University on a track scholarship, where he attained a Bachelor of Arts degree in history. After graduation, Scott was commissioned as a Second Lieutenant in the U.S. Army. He served in several posts in the United States and overseas in Vietnam, Korea and Germany as an armor officer, helicopter pilot and instructor pilot. Scott retired from the U.S. Army as a Lieutenant Colonel after 23 years of distinguished service.
During his time in Germany, Scott created the popular cartoon strip Quibbley, which appeared in the European Stars and Stripes newspaper for ten years and spawned eight books and several posters. The popularity of the comic strip was evidenced by the creation of a Quibbley Fan Club with several hundred members.
