Here’s a fun (and free!) cartoon-centric newsletter. Mr. Eckstein, who has been contributing to The New Yorker since 2007, generously provides more than a good handful of his cartoons, and then some.
Subscribe here to The Bob.
Among Mr. Eckstein’s many pursuits [see below] is editing a series of cartoon collections*, all published by Princeton Architectural Press: The Ultimate Cartoon Book of Book Cartoons, Everyone’s A Critic: The Ultimate Cartoon Book, and the forthcoming All’s Fair In Love And War: The Ultimate Cartoon Book.
Here’s Bob Eckstein’s entry on the Spill‘s A-Z:

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.
