COMICS SHERPA: EDITOR'S PICKS

This recurring LAUGH TRACKS feature highlights individual Sherpa strips and panels that for one reason or another caught the fancy of the aide de sherpa. It could be anythng; the drawing, the writing, the humor, the coloring, that they tried something interesting, or that it's a new step for that particular creator.

 

We hope this quirky sampler will alert you to features you might not yet have noticed amid Sherpa's abundant, ever-changing, and eclectic mix, and that it gives Sherpa creators a modicum of helpful feedback.

CHARLES BARSOTTI, R.I.P.

 

...Barsotti, born Sept. 28, 1933, in San Antonio, Texas, graduated from Texas State University in 1954 and worked for Kansas City-based Hallmark Cards as a greeting card artist before moving to New York to become cartoon editor for The Saturday Evening Post until that magazine closed. Barsotti and his family returned to Kansas City in the 1960s when Barsotti developed the "Sally Bananas" comic strip.

 

He freelanced cartoons for The New Yorker for several years before he became a staff cartoonist for magazine about 1970, while he and his family remained in Kansas City.

 

"You know, he drew cartoons about philosophy and kings, and I sort of think he was the philosopher king of cartoonists," Mankoff said. "Really. He asked the big questions. Why are we here? What should we do? In a very simple way which didn't come down on any sort of answers but says part of being human is just not ignoring these questions."... (Read complete obituary here.)

Thanks to today's email from The Nib (the link-rich toon site Matt Bors edits) I can pass along this strip by Gemma Correll. I'm going to miss Game of Thrones.

CHARMING

Stefan Watterson's glorious six-strip PEARLS BEFORE HOBBES series, which ran last week and racked up a bajillion hits and launched a gazillion happy blog posts and news articles, inspired once and future Sherpa cartoonist Davy Jones to post this riff on Facebook over the weekend:
