Scott Adams, the creator of the comic strip Dilbert, has an estimated net worth of $75 million. Although Adams had been interested in cartooning since he was a kid, too little improvement in artwork caused him to concentrate on a more conventional livelihood receiving a bachelor’s degree in economics. Then he started working for various businesses, including Pacific Bell, which will be where he worked when his first Dilbert cartoon was printed. From that point, the popularity of Dilbert grew slowly but steadily, until finally he could leave his job and work full time as a cartoonist.

Since that time, Dilbert has exploded in popularity, bringing Adams all sorts of cash from merchandising, publications, as well as a short lived animated situation comedy. Despite (or maybe because of) his success, Adams has not been free of controversy. He even lately confessed to logging onto various sites under a false name to protect himself from his attackers. Dilbert is still viewed and read in papers around the globe.
