The Cartoon Crier

The word “comic” has always been a bit of a misnomer and The Cartoon Crier hopes to set the record straight. Sorrow and woe is the focus of this free 36-page newspaper tabloid that highlights the work of The National Cartoonists Society members and of The Center for Cartoon Studies’ community.
The Cartoon Crier features the saddest strips from iconic comics like Family Circus, Beetle Bailey, Dennis the Menace, B.C., and For Better and For Worse. The Cartoon Crier also includes comics by Ivan Brunetti, Mell Lazarus, Melissa Mendes, Joe Lambert, Tom Gammill, Hilary Price, Laura Park, Richard Thompson, and Mo Willems, as well as new work from the paper’s editors, Cole Closser, R. Sikoryak, and James Sturm.
Midterm Thesis Project Posters are on exhibit at The Center for Cartoon Studies in the Colodny Building Gallery, at 94 South Main Street in downtown White River Junction. The posters provide a Midterm synopsis of student projects, featuring artwork and details on the intended final project.
On display during White River Junction’s First Friday, December 5, 5-7pm.
The Cartoonist Studio Prize will be awarded to work that exemplifies excellence in cartooning. The creators of two exceptional comics will be awarded $1000 each.

This year’s guest judge will be Paul Karasik, co-creator (with David Mazzucchelli) of the graphic novelization of Paul Auster’s “City of Glass”.
