Take a peek over Jim Borgman's shoulder

The Leis We Can Do

Nice one! Nice composition!

I notice that there is a brand new book out called “Killed Cartoons” which deals with cartoons that have met editors’ scorn. Some interesting things. Some bad ones, but some very good ones, too, like Herblock’s Eisenhower, McCarthy, Nixon toon and a Doonesbury abortion strip, among many others. Plus, there is a startling Norman Rockwell illustration, an Al Hirschfeld piece, and a very funny Sam Gross cartoon that the Yorker rejected.
Speaking of funny: today W.C. Fields’ masterpiece “The Man on The Flying Trapeze” was released on dvd. This film never made it to video for some reason, so it is especially welcomed. What a great flick -- a hilarious take on modern life: family, in-laws, marriage, the workplace, sports, the law, drinking, and burglars singing in the basement.

Where did john carey (nj) see the "Killed Cartoons" book? I did a quick Google search. Is the book's author David Wallin? I'd be interested in obtaining any info on purchasing that book.

Dear Jim: You need another long vacation, or treatment. I never find your cartoons amusing, or even interesting. I know you have a following, good for you. So do David Duke and Paris Hilton. Don't let it trick you into being satisfied with your work.

If you never find Jim's cartoons amusing or interesting, why do you read them, much less bother to comment on them? Stop being a moron by making comments for the sake of reading yourself and feeling 'special'.

Leave the cartoons and comments to those of us who appreciate Jim's talents and have meaningful comments to voice even though we sometimes disagree with what he is saying.

Just because you CAN comment, doesn't mean you SHOULD.

Tim: I saw the book at my local Barnes and Nobles. It's on Amazon, too. The editor is Davd Wallis.

About every 5 to 10 of you comics I read, I find 1 that makes me laugh out loud.

This one is one.

kThanks to john carey for his help on locating the "killed cartoons" book. The AAEC gives a prize to the cartoonist who drew the best "killed" cartoon at its annual convention.

"Killed Cartoons"! Hmmmm, I bed my brother-in-law would like a copy of that and I could look at it.
Great toon. I laughed out loud each of three times I viewed it.

Watch out and don't get complacent, now.

Is there a list, on the internet, of those who have received the annual award for best "k..C..?"

Hey, Jim, the detail out the front door on this one is outstanding. The porch roof, tree, car and the view across the street.

I feel peaceful each time I see it.

thanks. w
