Go, Read: Paul Karasik Remembers William Hamilton

Paul Karasik remembers the recently deceased, one-time New Yorker mainstay in a blog post found here. One thing that's great about looking at classic New Yorker cartoons in terms of a greater understand of comics as a whole is that it was a venue that rewarded multiple modes of expression and put the spotlight on a form that relied on delicate interplay between text and picture. Thus a lot of the cartoons are master classes in that particular element of comics -- what some scholars still hold is comics' defining element.
