Pioneer Press has announced that Chicago Sun-Times cartoonist Jack Higgins will also be drawing a weekly cartoon for them and The Doings newspapers. Jack tells me he’s still working for the Sun-Times, but will be providing weekly local cartoons to the other two publications which are owned by Sun-Times.
In other Higgins news, Northwestern University Press has published a collection of his work entitled “My Kind of ‘Toon, Chicago Is: Political Cartoons.” Forward is written by Roger Ebert. The book has 300 or so cartoons, half of which are based on local and state issues. It’s now in its third printing.
