Happy Holidays to all! If you are looking for a last minute Christmas gift the first Bear with Me book is available from Abrams

 Molly and the Bear is a comprehensive overview of the first 10 years of Bob Scott’s popular syndicated web comic. Featuring more than 400 of Bob’s personal favorite comic strips, this book showcases the quick-witted humor and delightful art that has garnered Molly and the Bear its strong and loyal fan base. The charming cast of characters, all drawn in Bob’s distinctive and endlessly entertaining style, starts with Bear, an 800-pound wild bear who is afraid of everything and allergic to his own fur. He meets Molly, an 11-year-old girl who becomes his best friend and main therapist, and with her help, Bear becomes a permanent part of the Henderson family. Though living with a bear is not always easy, it makes every day an adventure filled with silly, heartwarming, hilarious moments.

Bob Scott is a veteran of the animation industry having worked at all the major studios including Disney, Pixar, DreamWorks, and Warner Brothers. A talented and capable cartoonist, he brings his characters to life on the page like no one else­—with a particular flair for getting inside the head of an easily confused, angst-ridden bear—and as a special bonus, the book includes a step-by-step peek into Bob’s creative process. There’s truly never been a better way for new and longtime fans alike to delve into the art, fun, and hilarity of Bob Scott’s Molly and the Bear.

Bear with Me Pre-Order!



COMING WINTER 2021

This deluxe hardcover includes a curated selection of Bob Scott's comic strip Bear with Me, presented for your enjoyment! There will be an introductory essay and never-before-seen art included in this beautiful book!

Molly has real-world problems; Bear has problems with the real world!

It can be tough being a tween. You want to do big things, change the world, and right some wrongs. But you also have to deal with math homework, getting enough sleep and the drama between your dad and pet bear. This is Molly’s world.

Being a tween is so much easier when your BFF is an 800 pound bear.

Bear is no ordinary bear. He sheds like a normal bear, he snores like a normal bear, but he is afraid of absolutely everything. Plus, he is allergic to fur. His own. But with Molly holding his paw, he can muddle through.

About the Creator:

Bob Scott lives in both the world of comic strips and animation. Born in Detroit, Bob began drawing at a young age, copying what he saw in the funny pages. Acceptance and graduation from California Institute of the Arts opened the world of character animation for Bob. He has worked over 35 years in the industry as an animator, character designer, storyboard artist and voice talent. His credits can be found on projects from Warner Brothers’ Bugs Bunny in Box Office Bunny (1990), Turner Animation’s Cats Don’t Dance and Pixar’s The Incredibles. He has worked for Jim Davis, co-penciling U.S. Acres and co-directing Garfield: His 9 Lives. Bob has always wanted a comic strip of his own, and so Bear with Me (aka Molly and the Bear) was born and became a syndicated webcomic in 2010.
