As usual, John Read gives me an advanced sneak peak at his upcoming magazine (pictured above). This issue is dedicated to nine cartoonists whose first name is Mike or Michael. Rumor has it that Mike Lynch (one of the profiled cartoonists) is fond of saying, “you don’t have to be named Mike to make it as a cartoonist, but it don’t hurt!” Other cartoonists include: Mike Arnold, Mike Cope, Mike Edholm, Michael Jantze, Mike Marland, Michael Maslin, Michael Ramirez (who did the cover) and Mike Shapiro.
The magazine set to go to press at the end of the month. More information about John’s magazine is found on his website.
