Even More (Charles) Addams Family

It’s an awful lot of fun seeing the recent splurt of ink on “The Addams Family” and the master himself, Charles Addams. The occasion is of course the arrival of the new “Addams Family” animated film.  Here’s a good piece from The Smithsonian, “The Cultural History of ‘The Addams Family'”

— Homebodies was published by Simon & Schuster in 1954.

Mick Stevens’ “Instathing”

The long-time New Yorker contributor Mick Stevens (his cartoons began appearing there in December of 1979) has recently posted a goodly number of his drawings on Instagram under @secretlivesofthings In an email to The Spill, Mr. Steven’s called it an “Instathing” which I think is awfully catchy.
