Over at Comic Riffs, Michael Cavna has a lengthy profile of Mort Walker up on the occasion of Walker's 90th birthday. I've been through it once and enjoyed it. As much as people tend to dismiss the old guard of newspaper cartooning, Walker is a highly-skilled cartoonist to whose work millions of fans have responded. It's fascinating to see him reflect on his legacy on terms of being so directly tied into the newspaper business. I know a lot of cartoonists who see the newspaper industry as incidental to the comics even as they pull the majority of their living from them.
