Sick x 3


In the space of a few short years cartoonist/writer Jules Feiffer went from assistant to The Spirit's Will Eisner to one of the hippest cartoonists in the country. It happened in New York's THE VILLAGE VOICE, where his witty cartoon panel, "Feiffer", appeared. His collection, SICK, SICK, SICK, was a bestseller 50 years ago. Feiffer went on to a career writing plays, best selling books, and graphic novels. These examples of his observations on men, women and American society of the 1950s are what sent his career into those stratospheric heights.
