A New Comics Journal Column/Columnist

There’s almost nothing the Spill likes more than a site that leads to other sites — and now there’s a new one.  From The Comics Journal, July 26, 2019, “You Build Walls, We’re Gonna Probably Dig Holes (This Week’s Links)”this new column of “links relating…to comics” by Ryan Flanders, who told us in his recent TCJ article about MAD, that he “was a member of the MAD Art Department, though my roles spilled into editorial, talent scouting and the amorphous responsibility of ‘coming up with new ideas.'”  You’ll find a sprinkle or two of New Yorker cartoonists mentioned in this first column.

Today’s Daily Cartoonist & Cartoon; A Cartoon Collection By New Yorker One-Clubber Ted Key

A New Yorker One-Clubber’s Cartoon Collection

In today’s mail, courtesy of New Yorker writer, Bill Franzen, this never seen before (by me) 1956 Ted Key cartoon collection, Fasten Your Seat Belts!. Mr. Key will be forever known as the creator of Hazel.  He’s receiving attention here because he’s a member of the Spill‘s One Club — a group of cartoonists who had but one New Yorker cartoon published in their career. Mr. Key’s sole New Yorker cartoon (shown below) was published March 5, 1938. The look foreshadows Dana Fradon’s numerous office door drawings. 

The cartoon does not appear in this collection.  Perhaps it’s in his earlier collection(?), Many Happy Returns, published in 1951.

The Surreal McCoy’s Wolf Of Baghdad Kickstarter At 75%

The Surreal McCoy, who began contributing to The New Yorker in 2014, reports that the Kickstarter campaign for her “Wolf Of Baghdad” soundtrack is up to 75%.  To read more about this and contribute, go here

Ms. McCoy writes:  Here’s a short video by 3yin’s founder and bandleader Daniel Jonas to give a taste of the repertoire that we hope to be recording. The song is called Shams esh-Shamousa (Beautiful Sun) and is the Iraqi version of a traditional Arabic folk tune:

It rises, how beautiful is its light/The sun, precious sun/Come on, let’s go and milk the buffalo/It rose over the river Tigris/A gentle breeze blew from the west/ The waves call out ‘Hello!’/And send the sun their greetings.

And Over On Medium…

An alert from Medium about Hilary Fitzgerald Campbell’s latest post reminded me to note here that it’s an interesting place to see non-New Yorker work by New Yorker artists you might not see elsewhere.

 Some for instances (no links: you’ll have to search on Medium‘s site for these):
