John K on Don Martin

John K (of Ren & Stimpy fame) posts a collection of cartoons from one of my favorite cartoonists, Don Martin. I know Don Martin almost exclusively through his work for Mad Magazine, so seeing some of these other cartoons is especially enlightening.

Scrolling through these little cartoons it’s easy to miss this gem that John K busts out:

To me, blogs are even better than books because the people who make them actually like the work itself and are generously willing to share it with the rest of the world. Fans put up the cartoons and comics in all their glory - unlike so many books that hide tiny thumbnail drawings within a vast sea of boring text written by pompous non-cartoonists who want to find some way to intellectualize the work -rather than just showing you the work and letting you enjoy it for what it is.
