is the magazine for working cartoonists, aspiring cartoonists and fans of the art of cartooning.  Each issue features profiles (interviews and art) of professional artists who draw comic strips, comic books, editorial cartoons, caricatures, greeting cards, advertising illustrations, children's books, magazine cartoons, web comics, and/or who work in the fields of animation and gaming.  Rounding out the interviews are articles and columns pertaining to the art and business of cartooning in America.  Each jam-packed issue is loaded with drawings, photos and information that is sure to enlighten and entertain the aspiring cartoonist, as well as the seasoned practitioner.  With his unabashed "paean to professional cartoonists," publisher/editor John Read "endeavors to advance the knowledge of the craft of cartooning...and in so doing, increase appreciation for the value and relevance [of cartoonists] to our society."
