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)

Looking Ahead to 2013: New Books by Gahan Wilson, Pat Byrnes, VIP, Shannon Wheeler, and more

Too early to look ahead to cartoon books coming out in 2013? Nah!

Looking through Amazon’s listings for next year, the first title I came upon that caught my eye: VIP: The Mad World of Virgil Partch by Jon Baril (July 20, 2013, Fantagraphics).

 

From the publisher:

VIP: The Mad World of Virgil Partch is the first time Partch’s life and career has been treated in full, collecting amazing artwork from the entire range of his inspired career and featuring his own writings. Reprinted from original art, primary-source publications, and collectors’ and family archives, VIP’s place in the world of cartooning and humor can finally be fully appreciated in this beautiful coffee-table volume. 120 pages of full color illustrations and 120 pages of black and white illustrations.

 

In June there’s Captain Dad: The Manly Art of Stay-At-Home Parenting by Pat Byrnes (June 4, 2013, Homegrown).

From the publisher:

Pat Byrnes worked at home and made his own hours. His wife’s job (Illinois Attorney General) was not so flexible. So when the first baby came, he naively volunteered to go where few men have gone before and stay home with the kids. On one condition. He wouldn’t be called Mr. Mom, but . . . Captain Dad.

 

In April, Cartoons of World War II, edited by Tony Husband (April 30, 2013,  Arcturus Publishing Limited)

From the publisher:

This book is a brilliant collection of cartoons from Britain, the United States, Germany, and Russia. It contains the work of all of World War IIs greatest cartoonists, including Bill Mauldin, Fougasse, Emett, David Langdon, and Graham Laidler.

 

On March 5, 2013, from Boom! Studios: I Thought You would Be Funnier Vol.3 by Shannon Wheeler:

From the publisher;

The third cartoon collection from the mind of Eisner Award-winning, Harvey Award-nominated and current New Yorker magazine cartoonist, Shannon Wheeler! It’s the best-of-the-best of what’s left on the cutting room floor from Wheeler’s cartoon submissions to The New Yorker magazine

 

And finally: On February 20th, 2013, from Fantagraphics: Gahan Wilson Sunday Comics

From the publisher:

Gahan Wilson Sunday Comics is Wilson’s assault from within: His little-known syndicated strip that appeared in America’s newspapers between 1974 an 1976. Readers must have been startled to find Wilson’s freaks, geeks, and weirdos nestled among family, funny-animal, and soap opera offerings. (The term “zombie strip” — a strip that has long outlived its original creator — takes on a whole new meaning in Wilson’s hands.) While each strip, at first glance, appears to be a standard, color Sunday strip (albeit without panel borders), each Sunday Comic is a collection of one-panel gag cartoons, delineated in Wilson’s brilliantly controlled wiggly-but-sophisticated pen line.
