From Comics Alliance, “Putting the ‘Comic’ in ‘Comic Book’: A Tribute to John Stanley” by Benito Ceren. Mr. Stanley is a member of Ink Spill‘s “One Club” (One Club membership is limited to cartoonists who had but one drawing in The New Yorker during their career). Mr. Stanley’s cartoon — an eight panel captionless drawing — appeared in The New Yorker March 15, 1947.

Out today is Drew Dernavich‘s book for pre-schoolers, It’s Not Easy Being Number Three (Henry Holt & Co.)
From the publisher:
Drew Dernavich is a regular cartoonist for the New Yorker magazine, and the recipient of a National Cartoonists Society award. His cartoons have also appeared in many publications including TIME, the Wall Street Journal,Harvard Business Review, the Boston Globe, and the comics anthology Flight. He lives in New York City.
It happened last night: The New Yorker’s first Holiday Party way downtown near its new offices in The World Trade Center. The venue was dark (see photos), small, and filled with throbbing music. The joint was packed (yes, like sardines) with happy folk. Saw Calvin Trillin anchored near the entrance, while the magazine’s editor, David Remnick shouldered through the crowd, stopping to chat here and there. I believe that Mark Singer (or someone who looked like him) and I passed like ships in the night. Also spotted: 2014’s winner of The Thurber Prize, John Kenney, and the magazine’s art editor, Francoise Mouly.
A number of cartoonists were present. Top photo: a blurry Felipe Galindo (whose exhibit “New York Stories” just opened at The Mark Miller Gallery), and David Borchart. 2nd photo: Ben Schwartz and Joe Dator. 3rd: Andy Friedman (sometimes aka Larry Hat) and Liana Finck. 4th: Amy Hwang, Liza Donnelly, P.C. Vey and Charlie Hankin. 5th: Drew Dernavich in the middle of the crowd. 6th: Danny Shanahan and Robert Leighton. [all photos courtesy of Liza Donnelly]
