Shannon Wheeler’s Next Book

Too Much Coffee Man: The Before Years, out March 2020, is the latest from Mr. Wheeler who began contributing to The New Yorker in 2009. About the book, from the publisher, Dark Horse Books:

Featuring decades of strips and comics with new sequential work connecting and commenting on each era, Wheeler analyzes formative periods in his life as a creator. College-era strips early in his cartooning career are mixed with new stories and gag comics to create a narrative arc that leads to Wheeler’s work on Postage Stamp Funnies and Villain House! Fans of Wheeler and the art of cartooning will enjoy this super-caffeinated collection detailing the origin of his most famous creation and his journey from cartooning for free for college papers to making a bit more money at The Onion, and ultimately making just a little bit more at The New Yorker–the apex job for a cartoonist!

Visit Mr. Wheeler’s website here.

The Monday Watch, The New Yorker Issue Of August 19, 2019; Today’s Daily Cartoonist & Cartoon; Sara Lautman’s Daily Shouts

The Cover: Kara Walker’s early release Toni Morrison cover was mentioned here previously.

The Cartoonists & Cartoons:

Good to see Tom Bachtell‘s fab “Spots” work this week…As you can see, there’s another duo effort from Pia Guerra and her husband, Ian Boothby…No Newbie (or Newbies) this week…Cartoon placement (sizing) in this issue: a few look just right (Bruce Kaplan‘s fun beach drawing for instance) and Danny Shanahan‘s uncovered flooring); Liana Finck‘s perhaps needed to be run larger so we could easily make out the lettering on the caps her folks are wearing (this may be an online issue — won’t know til the print copy is in hand); a few drawings would’ve benefited, graphically, by being run smaller. Fewer than average number of cartoons in this issue (just eleven) but we are after all in the waning weeks of summer.

The Spill’s (Please) Bring Back Rea Irvin’s Classic Talk Masthead Campaign: Mr. Irvin’s beautiful iconic masthead (below), sadly disappeared in May of 2017 and was amazingly (amazing to me anyway) replaced by a redrawn(!) version. Read about it here.
