Lee Salem’s interview with Mr. Media posted
Mr. Media has posted a lengthy and interesting interview with Lee Salem, President and Editor at Universal Press Syndicate. Mr. Salem fields questions about his first impressions about Doonesbury, The Far Side, Calvin and Hobbes, Cathy, For Better or For Worse, Foxtrot, Boondocks, Bloom County and Lio.
There’s also an interesting discussion on the Universal Press culture and why is it that Universal’s cartoonist (at least high profile) retire early or take long sabbaticals or both. Other questions include why the Cathy Guisewite’s Cathy gets picked on so much – even by fellow cartoonists.
There are some other ‘toon gems as well. Worth the read.
