Al Jaffee Hands Fold-In Off to Johnny Sampson

  Cartoonist Steve DuQuette has passed away. Steven Aldrich (Steve) DuQuette May 13, 1927 – October 26, 2019   Saying Steve was a cartoonist seems a bit of understating.

“He knows he’s Gahan Wilson”

Even if you don’t know Gahan Wilson’s name, chances are very good that you’ve laughed at his creations. As one of the most legendary cartoonists of the last half century, his work appeared often in magazines like Playboy, and in National Lampoon, where his regular comic strip, “Nuts,” delved into the world of childhood trauma. […]

Everyone’s A Critic Editor Critques the Industry

Bob Eckstein, cartoon editor of a new book, sits down with cartoonist Michael Maslin. Fittingly, when Michael Maslin sat down and interviewed Bob Eckstein it began with criticism of the current gag cartooning market.

Liza Donnelly Becomes a New Yorker Cartoonist

Liza Donnelly: The year was 1979 and I was lost. Not completely so, but, on balance, I was a bit of a mess. If my life were a pie chart, there would be a slice of about one-eighth that would represent the part of my life that was percolating along fairly well. That part was […]
