New Yorker Cartoons of the Year 2012 & Index

 

Out now is The New Yorker’s  Cartoons of the Year 2012.  This issue, or bookazine as it’s called in the Introduction, is 144 pages, with over 250 cartoons. It will remain on sale until February 18, 2013. This is the third year the bookazine has appeared.  Previous to 2010, The New Yorker produced  the Cartoon Yearbook ( a hardcover collection) in 2007, 2008, and 2009.

Featured this year are three spreads, “One More Trip Around the Sun” by Roz Chast, “Bad Dog” by Peter Steiner, and “Gay Marriage” by William Haefeli.  Other special sections include “The Best of The Caption Contest” and “I Don’t Get It” as well as “The Funnies” — Bob Mankoff provides the Introducton.

As it did for Cartoons of the Year 2011, Ink Spill is providing a complete Index of Cartoonists  for this new edition. Completists might want to print it out and tape it inside the back cover.

Note: An asterisk appearing next to a cartoonist’s name indicates that the cartoonist has a drawing appearing in the “Best of the Caption Contest”  section (and…forgive the spaces between several of the names. Example: between Flake and Friedman .  Sometimes my wordpress  has a mind of its own)

New Yorker begins The Daily Cartoon

Bob Mankoff, The New Yorker’s Cartoon Editor, announced today in his weekly blog that newyorker.com is adding a new feature to its content, The Daily Cartoon.  One cartoonist will provide topical material five days a week for a month. First up is David Sipress, who has been contributing to the magazine since 1998. Content is up and running.

Mick Stevens’ dots, Facebook and The New Yorker

 

By now the whoop-dee-doo over Facebook’s temporary shutdown of The New Yorker’s Facebook page over a cartoon (seen above) by Mick Stevens has been covered by a multitude of sites.  If you missed the story check out  these posts: first, the New Yorker’s cartoon editor’s blog,  this Daily News post, and finally, this post from The Daily Mail (UK).

 

The Daily News article mentions that several websites were under the impression that Stevens’ redrawn clothed Adam and Eve cartoon (above) was an effort by The New Yorker to appease Facebook.  Ink Spill contacted the cartoonist today and asked how the second drawing came about and what its intention was. So, here’s Mick Stevens, with the last word on what he calls “those dots.”

“Bob [Mankoff] emailed me when the Facebook thing happened and asked me if I would do a version with Adam and Eve clothed, just for contrast and for use in a possible future blog…some folks got the idea though that we did the second version to satisfy our new censors at Facebook, which isn’t the case.”
