One last look at Jim Ivey’s photo album today. If you’d like to see a great selection of Jim’s cartoons you are in luck. Robin Snyder’s magazine “The Comics – The Original First Person History” starts publishing a retrospective of Jim Ivey’s cartoons in the current issue, with the cartoons personally chosen by Ivey along with his commentary. You can subscribe to “The Comics”, which apparently does not have a website, by sending $28 ($35 foreign) for a 12-issue subscription to:
3745 Canterbury Ln #81
Bellingham WA 98225-1186
To be safe you might mention that you wish to start your sub with the first Ivey issue, but it is the current issue as this is written. And Snyder’s publication is well worth the small price, as it features all sorts of really interesting material from all genres and phases of cartooning history. Highly recommended.
