    RIP! The good GW has expired, but never from our hearts…

    Cartoonist Gahan Wilson gestures as New Yorker cartoon editor Robert Mankoff looks over Wilson’s offerings at the magazine’s offices in New York Tuesday, Nov. 27, 2001. Every Tuesday, about an hour before lunchtime, some of the greatest cartoonists alive pitch their their latest batch of drawings in person to Mankoff in the first step of the brutally competitive process of selling cartoons to The New Yorker.

    From Deadline

    …Wilson’s staple was black humor. In a 2013 film documentary on his life, Gahan Wilson: Born Dead, Still Weird, The New Yorker editor David Remnick said of him, “Some cartoonists can be good by having jokes, gags, and they’re funny gags,. The really great ones develop a private language, a set of characters, a set of expectations, a world. Gahan Wilson developed a world.”…        

    Hell, no... I'm not giving up...
