Mickey Siporin, 1941-2005


The filmmaker and editorial cartoonist Mickey Siporin passed away late last week according to published reports. Siporin was published in the Los Angeles Times, the Newark Star-Ledger, the New York Times, the Toronto Star, USA Today and the Village Voice. He had recently come back to many people's attention for his inclusion in Ted Rall's Attitude: The New Subversive Political Cartoonists. His short films were shown on various pay and public channels, and his parody of educational films called "How to Eat" rests in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art. He also wrote Spidey Super Stories in the 1970s. His web site can be found here; his Lambiek entry is here.
