Kevin Fagan, 22, became the nation's youngest syndicated cartoonist last March when 100 newspapers began carrying Drabble, his comic strip featuring a shy, confused 20-year-old college student. "Drabble's problem is that he tries too hard to hide his insecurity," says Fagan. The character is a toned-down version of Murray, an arrogant, bearded and more radical protagonist that Fagan drew for the undergraduate newspaper at California State U at Sacramento. Though a career aptitude test showed that he should be either a philosopher or an orchestra leader, Kevin sent samples of Murray to Peanuts creator Charles Schulz, who suggested he approach the major syndicates. When United Feature called with a deal (now worth six figures annually and split 50-50 between distributor and artist), Fagan tried to play it supercool but, like Drabble, lost control. While riding down the freeway shortly thereafter, Kevin recalls glancing at the speedometer and discovering to his horror that he was going 80 miles an hour. The youngest of four brothers, he lives in El Toro, Calif. with his widowed mother and creates four hours a day in his upstairs bedroom. Fagan is taking history and French at nearby Saddleback College for fun, but his tuition should be deductible. "Whenever something happens on the campus," he says, "I immediately try to think what I could do with it for my strip."
