Jules Feiffer Has Never Been Happier

Feiffer expresses great enthusiasm for his latest project, which is something he never imagined would actually happen. A screenplay he wrote some three decades ago, based on characters he devised for his comic strip in the late 1950s, was actually made into a [live action] movie. “Bernard and Huey” opens nationwide Friday, June 8.

Above is a Bernard page from Playboy via Sam Henderson‘s Magic Whistle.
Another warning: While Jules Feiffer’s cartoons are clearly meant for adult audiences, the Magic Whistle link includes Playboy cartoons of an “adult” nature and may not be safe for work.
Back to the Bernard and Huey movie – more information about the movie, other upcoming Jules Feiffer projects, and Jules current happiness in the San Francisco Chronicle article.



Last week a few places called attention to Mo‘s second coming, we didn’t.
So this week I’m reminding people that the supremely talented Ann Telnaes’ weekly (Mondays) comic strip continues with its third issue.


Speaking of The Pulitzers…

Here’s a book we need.

Madness in Crowds: The Teeming Mind of Harrison Cady is a 10” x 14” cloth-bound hardcover volume that clocks in at 176 pages.  It collects work by Cady, one of the eminent magazine illustrators and cartoonists of the early 20th century.  The collection is curated and written by Denis Kitchen, with design by Paul Kepple (designer, The Temple of Silence).
