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.

The Schulz Library at The Center for Cartoon Studies
Thanks to donations from publishers, cartoonists, and faculty members the Schulz Library collection continues to grow. Thanks to R.Sikoryak and The Will Eisner Technology Initiative, The Schulz Library now has a new digital collection of thousands of golden and silver age comic books in a searchable data base. A robust technology resource, including iPads, scanners, tablets, and laptops are also available for check-out. There’s hot tea for those who want to relax in one of the library’s comfy chairs where a cold winter’s day can be spent discovering a new favorite cartoonist or reading the book that made you want to become a cartoonist in the first place.
Visit the Schulz Blog to search the catalog, read interviews with faculty and alum, see some of our recent acquisitions, book reviews, and more.
In the future, robots will rule the world—and live in fear of their mysterious, absent creators.
