I’m going through my collection of old saved magazines, trying to cull it down to something reasonable. Some findings:

  • There’s a Newsweek from 2002 that mentions – not MySpace the social network, but its previous incarnation as an online storage locker.
  • It’s cool how many cartoonists whose work I was introduced to by the pages of Nickelodeon Magazine: Kaz, Tony Millionaire, Sam Henderson, Michael Kupperman, Johnny Ryan, Ellen Forney, R. Sikoryak, Kim Deitch, among others. Here’s a Kupperman strip from 1998… I knew I remembered Citobor from somewhere prior to Snake ‘n’ Bacon’s Cartoon Cavalcade
  • I still have a big collection of teen girl magazines that I was using as source material for an abandoned zine project. I’m hesitant to throw them out in case I ever decide to resurrect that project, or to use in other projects. And I’m not sure if teen girl magazines even exist anymore so it’s a finite commodity. We’ll see.
