On this Summertime slow cartoon news day I thought I’d post photos of treasures found on a recent expedition northeast of my home.
Jeremy, a main character from The Beatles’ film Yellow Submarine, was in a church basement thrift shop. When I held Jeremy up into the air and asked the woman manning the register, “How much?” she replied, “Aw, just take him — no charge!”
Further north at my favorite bookstore (located close by the NY – Massachusett’s border), I found this 1960 paperback by John Norment. I had actually seen it on another visit a week before and had gone back to the store hoping it was still there. Buying this book led to an email exchange later that day with Mr. Norment’s niece who kindly allowed two photos of her uncle to be used on Ink Spill’s New Yorker Cartoonists A – Z
And finally, tucked horizontally into the humor section ( no doubt because of its over-size format) I found an issue of Francoise Mouly & Art Spiegelman’s Raw. This particular issue, Number 2, contains a small booklet attached to the inner back cover — the first installment of Spiegelman’s Maus.
