R.C. Harvey Profiles Ted Shearer

Over at The Comics Journal, R.C. Harvey writes at length about pioneering African-American cartoonist Ted Shearer and his syndicated comic “Quincy.”

Ted Shearer from the article:

“When I gave my name over the phone in arranging for an appointment, I suppose they figured that ‘Shearer’ was Irish. But when I showed up for the meeting and the receptionist saw me, she went into an inner office and made me sit out in the reception room for an hour. When I finally did get in to see my man, he went through my portfolio in about three seconds and then said, ‘If there’s anything, we’ll let you know.’”
