Interview in StayTooned! Magazine

I received an email from StayTooned! Magazine editor & publisher, John Read, that Issue 6 of his wonderful cartooning publication is currently at the printer and copies should be available next week.

This issue is being dedicated as an "All-Mikes" and I'm honoured to have been interviewed alongside such a talented selection of fellow professional cartoonists named Mike.

From the StayTooned! Magazine website ...

Issue 6 (available beginning March 3rd and until it inevitably sells out) features a multitude of Mikes: new profiles (that's interviews and art galleries) of Mike Arnold, Mike Cope, Mike Edholm, Michael Jantze, Mike Lynch, Michael Maslin and Michael Ramirez; Cartoonist Surveys conducted by David Paccia with Mike Marland and Mike Shapiro; a "True-Life Adventure" told by Mike Mignola. Photo reports share John Read's "One Fine Sunday in the Funny Pages" travels to Disney ToonFest and Omaha, Nebraska, and his visit to the Cartoon Library at Ohio State University for the Sunday Funnies stamps First-Day-of-Issue ceremony. AND: articles/columns contributed by Tom Richmond, R.C. Harvey, Jim Ivey, Rich & Neil Diesslin and John Hambrock!
John's email mentioned that he'll be mailing us copies very soon, but since mine will need to travel from Madison, Mississippi to Canada, it may be a week or so before I can share any photo previews. Nevertheless, if you're a professional or aspiring cartoonist, or a dedicated fan of cartoon art, I highly recommend that you consider subscribing -- It's worth every drop of ink!!
