Bob Mankoff Launches New Cartoon Site

Longtime/former New Yorker cartoon editor and current Esquire humor editor Bob Mankoff announced earlier in the month he was launching a new cartoon site in the same mold as The Cartoon Bank  (a site he created and later sold to Conde Nast).

He spoke to Michael Cavna at The Washington Post’s Comic Riffs about the new site

Mankoff has seen the magazine market for freelance cartoonists shrink significantly since he entered the business as a cartoonist in the ‘70s. Yet he believes a cartoon aggregation site, through innovation and experimentation, should be able to generate millions of dollars in annual revenue — while maintaining a 50/50 split “with the cartoonists no matter where their material has been published, after our costs.”
