The Cartoon Issue, 2015

For this third-annual edition, we once again tap into a beloved natural resource in Vermont. Nope, not cheese or beer. Cartoonists: the artists who make our stories come alive with drawings and eliminate a whole lot of words. We called upon a few cartoonists in neighboring New Hampshire, too, but close to the Center for Cartoon Studies in White River Junction. That school has made the area a magnet for emerging cartoon talent, joining the likes of Vermont-based New Yorker contributors Harry Bliss and Edward Koren — Vermont's current cartoonist laureate — as well as the state's first cartoonist laureate, James Kochalka. Other contributors comprise a diverse group of freelancers, teachers and comics-industry veterans. Equally diverse are the stories they've illustrated, from the serious to the silly. Hope you enjoy them.
