One of the cool things that happened last weekend at ToonFest in Marceline was the appearance of John Read with a handful of advance copies of the second issue his magazine Stay Tooned!
The issue looks great, including the fantastic cover seen above by Joe Staton. Contents include:
- Profiles of Mike Peters, Tom Bancroft, Joe Staton, Mason Mastroianni and Bill Day
- Interviews with Jules Feiffer, Berke Brethed and Ben Towle.
- Pictures from the 2008 NCS Reuben awards
- Several articles by the likes of Jack Cassidy, Corey Pandolph and Norm Feuti
- Regular features galore including R.C. Harvey‘s “Funnies Farrago” and my “MAD Mailbag”
As with the first issue the profiles are jam packed with the subject’s artwork, and the other pages are likewise filled with great cartooning and great information. Also once again the issue is huge, weghing in at 88 pages with minimal ads.
This is obvioulsy a labor of love for John and the results are terrific. If you don’t have a subcription yet¬¨‚Ä† check out the Stay Tooned! website for the goodies. Highly recommended.
