I learned today that Mad will go from a monthly to a quarterly schedule. A lot of cartoonists are going to miss the income. Also Time magazine has decided to cancel the Drawing Room cartoon page. How visionary. I nearly had a cartoon in there: made the final round in the edit but lost out. The feature only ran a couple of months. I don't think they were very serious in their interest in cartoons. Where will this madness end? A world devoid of cartoons? I shudder to think. Everyone loves cartoons. Why can't these publishers see that?
This cartoon was one I sent to Mad but didn't get bought. Al Feldstein saw it at an NCS function at OSU and thought it was pretty funny.
