"Cartoonist of the Month" blog takes a breather ; "The Cartoon Lounge" starts its engines ; Rea Irvin piece in Print ; Vintage Books reissues two Joseph Mitchell classics
Keen-eyed Newyorker.com cartoonist blog afficiandos may have noticed that there is no July Cartoonist of the Month on the website. Ink Spill, wondering what was up, contacted The New Yorker, and was informed that the blog is on "hiatus"...meanwhile, the long awaited Cartoonist Lounge has appeared, with a foursome listed as Authors. According to The New Yorker, that list will "probably" expand in the future.
