Gary Blehm had it all in the 90s -- a rare syndication deal for his distinctive comic, a best-selling poster, a rewarding side gig speaking to schools. Then, it was all derailed by a rival that he maintains ripped him off from top to bottom. Thing is, the courts sided with the rival -- Life is Good -- and Gary's been left to rebuild his brand while dodging insults online that he's a hack and a ripoff artist. Thursday, October 22, 2015.
