The cartooning community has lost a gentleman of the art. Arnold Wagner passed away on Friday August 31st after a return of an earlier battle of cancer. Arnold was a co-founder to an early cartoonist trade journal called The PRO Cartoonist & Gagwriter and authored The Complete Idiot’s Guide To Cartooning. He was a frequent participant in both ToonTalk and The Wisenheimer.
