Palookaville 6: Quest For A Cartoonist
In this issue, Seth moves from a quest for Kalo's cartoons to a quest for the man himself. Here are some random thoughts on this comic:
*Nostalgia is clearly a major theme of Seth's, though I'm not sure if one can genuinely be nostalgic for a time before one's birth. Nevertheless, Seth is fascinated by the past, his own and in general, particularly the early to mid 20th Century, and that motif runs through much of his work, but especially this story.
*Though Seth is fascinated by New Yorker cartoonists, Seth would one day have his art appear on the cover of The New Yorker, which back in 1994 when this issue was published, likely seemed like a pipe dream to him.
*Seth's penis doesn't gueststar this issue, but Chester Brown does. Cartoonists Chris Ware and James Kochalka pop up in the letters page.

Google plops ads on here with my permission in the futile hope that I will make money (so far, um, no). I find the ads amusing because they try to tie in with the content of the posts. However, if Google has a crush on you, then the ads may deal with things you're interested in instead. Please set your browser accordingly if you object to that (eat those cookies). Google also provides traffic statistics to me so I can see if anyone's reading this silly thing (yes, people are), but otherwise I don't give a hoot who you are. Enjoy the blog and love Big Brother! I also don't receive money or other compensation for Yips, though I have nothing against money or other compensation (that's why I run advertising and sometimes use Amazon referrals for links); if I'm selling something (say, my books), then it will be pretty obvious I'm selling it . . . say, have you thought about buying a signed copy of The Pornographic Flabbergasted Emus lately?
