Websightings: Amazon lists two new New Yorker cartoon books ; Seth & Spiegelman at Vancouver Art Gallery; Blogspotting: Sempe video courtesy of Mike Lynch

Amazon has listed two new New Yorker cartoon titles, with scant information on either, other than the pub dates and number of pages. Both titles are published by Andrews & McMeel. In August of 2008 they bring us The New Yorker Sudoku Comic Digest: 200 Puzzles Plus 50 Classic New Yorker Cartoons http://www.amazon.com/
and in September of 2008, The New Yorker Cartoon Caption Contest http://www.amazon.com/

From the Vancouver Sun, February 22, 2008 "Spring Arts: Visual Arts" this story on an exhibition at the Vancouver Art Gallery "Krazy! The Delirious World of Anime + Comics + Video Games + Art" running from May 17, 2008 through September 7, 2008. The exhibit includes work by Seth and Art Spiegelman. http://www.canada.com/

From Mike Lynch Cartoons, "Video: Jean-jacques Sempe on Rene Goscinny and Le Petit Nicolas" ( the video appears down the page just beyond the scans from Chon Day's collection "I Could Be Dreaming" -- Day's drawings are interesting too, of course). http://mikelynchcartoons.blogspot.com/
