David Langdon’s “Langdon At Large”; Today’s Daily Cartoonist: Peter Kuper; Yesterday’s Bonus Daily Cartoon & Daily Shouts

David Langdon’s “Langdon At Large”

Was much fun to find the above scan of David Langdon’s 1958 collection, Langdon At Large awaiting in my inbox this morning, courtesy of  Warren Bernard, the executive director of SPX (and author of the terrific, Cartoons For Victory).  Mr. Bernard excels at digging up cartoon surprises. Until ten minutes ago I’d never seen the cover of this 61 year old book.  As a bonus, the back cover features a photo of Mr. Langdon (that will be added to his entry on the Spill‘s A-Z).

Here’s Mr. Langdon’s entry on the A-Z:

David Langdon born, London, February 24, 1914. His work is perhaps most identified with Punch, where he contributed from 1937 through 1992, when Punch ceased to publish. He was elected to the Punch Table in 1958. New Yorker work: 1945 -1973. Key book: Langdon At Large ( Wingate, 1958)

Born, Cincinnati, 1940. New Yorker work: 1979 – .

Travels With Walter Groovy: Joe Dator & Friend In Japan; Today’s Daily Cartoonist: David Sipress

Joe Dator, fresh off his win at the NCSFest (he won in the category of Best In Gag Cartoons), headed to Japan with his traveling companion, Walter Groovy.  I asked Mr. Dator to talk a little about Mr. Groovy:

Well, he’s the doughy balding middle aged man who shows up in my cartoons quite a bit, enough so that I gave him a name. I took him to Australia in 2017, he was with me at the Reuben Awards in CA last week, and I’m probably taking him with me to Italy later this year. 

Mr. Dator added: “If he looks a little different, it’s because he’s a special version I dubbed “Konnichi-Groovy.'”

Mr. Dator began contributing to The New Yorker in 2006.  Visit his website here.
