Mr. Leighton began contributing to The New Yorker in 2002; Bob Eckstein in 2007;

If you like links as much as I do you might enjoy The Comics Journal’s weekly round-up compiled by Clark Burscough. There are no New Yorker cartoonists mentioned in this week’s post (sorry if I missed someone; cover artist Chris Ware is mentioned tho), it’s fun to see what’s happening outside the New Yorker cartoon beltway.
