A New Mick Stevens Cartoon Collection

Just out! There’s a brand new collection of cartoons from one of the very best of the New Yorker‘s funniest folks.  El Mundo de Mick Stevens (The World Of Mick Stevens), published in Spain by Editorial Tebar, can be ordered on Amazon here. 

The Spill  asked Mr. Stevens to say a few words about his new book:

These are mostly unpublished work from my archives, going back several years. My friend, editor, and translators David Roman and Maura O’Donnell chose work that would work best in Spain and other Spanish-speaking countries and cultures, as opposed to “Americanisms”.

Here’s Mr. Stevens entry on the A-Z:

Mick Stevens Born March 11, 1942, Portland, Oregon. New Yorker work: December 17, 1979- . Key collections: If Ducks Carried Guns (Fireside/Simon & Schuster, 1988), A Mystery, Wrapped in an Enigma, Served on a Bed of Lettuce ( Fireside/Simon & Schuster, 1989 ), Things Not to Do Today ((Fireside/Simon & Schuster, 1989 ).
