JOHN REINER (American, 1956)
BUNNY HOEST (American, 1932)
Doodle for Hunger, 2009
Ink on paper
9 x 12 in.

John Reiner (born 1956) is a cartoonist who collaborates with writer Bunny Hoest, widow of Bill Hoest, on three cartoon series: The Lockhorns, syndicated by King Features, and Laugh Parade and Howard Huge (both for Parade magazine).

Bill Hoest needed an assistant for his strips and cartoons, and in 1986, he hired Reiner to help on The Lockhorns, Agatha Crumm and What a Guy! Eventually, he was assisting on all the Hoest cartoons and strips. After Hoest's 1988 death, Bunny Hoest kept the family business going, and Reiner remained as the artist, working in the turret studio of the Hoest mansion in Lloyd Neck, Long Island.
