Max:  With the Knicks and the Nets out of the NBA playoffs, this week’s cover suggests it’s time for New Yorkers to hit the courts.

Simon:  In Washington, they’ll be hitting the courts as well – though the uniforms will look more like judicial robes as the Russian probe deepens.

Max: The cover of this week’s issue screams “Play ball!”

Simon: And it’s our job at Cartoon Companion to call the balls and strikes.

 

Harry Bliss featured in the newly re-designed Cartoon Companion!

Max: What do you think of the redesign of Cartoon Companion, Simon?

Simon: Beautiful, Max! I finally get my own desert island.

Max: Plus new features: interviews with New Yorker cartoonists, starting with Harry Bliss; a gallery of cartoons generously provided by the cartoonists, including cartoons rejected by the magazine (it’ll grow over the next few weeks); easy ways to follow Cartoon Companion … I could go on.

Simon: As always, but I’m going straight to the Harry Bliss interview, part 1, which suggests to me that part 2 will be next week.
