Today we have a bit of c. 1995 Harv: A profile of cartoonist Betty Swords. And if that’s not enough for you, click over to Mike Lynch’s site to read Swords’ profile of Virgil Partch, as printed in the 1962 issue of Pro Cartoonist & Gag Writer. Also onboard is Rob Clough’s review of the anthology Gay Genius.
Speaking of history, here’s a profile and a video of Irwin Hasen over at The New York Times. Not to far south of Hasen was artist Joe Brainard, who made his own kinda comic-based work.
In TCJ-related news, Tim, Joe McCulloch and Matt Seneca talked with Robin McConnell for nearly two hours on Robin’s year-end Inkstuds. This is fine entertainment. And Jeet Heer writes about Herge.
Finally, Tom Spurgeon has an obituary of Eduardo Barreto.
