Jef Mallett is arguably the best known open water swimmer with the greatest media reach in America.

Although he is best known for his comic Frazz that appears in 200 newspapers worldwide, he is an enthusiastic, emerging marathon swimmer who did not finish the 2015 Boston Light Swim, but then came back strong in 2016 and successfully completed the 8-mile swim in 4 hours 18 minutes.

His comic of August 20th [shown above] is based on his first-hand experiences amid the Boston Harbor Islands.
