Critiquing New Yorker cartoons

After a few weeks of intrigue, Tom Hart has revealed himself to be the mastermind behind the recent New Yorker cartoon analysis site, Sh*t My New Yorker Cartoons. Older posts are here.

I guess the title is a reference to the blog-turned-short-lived-TV-show, “Sh*t My Dad says?” Not sure what happened to the verb, but anyway, if you read the New Yorker for the cartoons, or at least read them all first (it’s distracting when you are earnestly trying to follow a story about penguin habitat studies and there’s a desert island comic on the next page) you’ll probably appreciate a chance to reflect on what makes particular comics succeed or fail. And I totally agree about Farley Katz.
