Mort Gerberg On the Scene: A 50-Year Cartoon Chronicle

From Fantagraphics.

Mort Gerberg broke into print with irreverent drawings in The Realist in the early ’60s, whose social-justice-minded—and bitingly funny—cartoons have since appeared in all major magazines, including The New Yorker, Playboy, and the Saturday Evening Post.

As a reporter, he’s sketched historic scenes like the fiery Women’s Marches of the ’60s and the infamous ’68 Democratic National Convention.

Above all, Mort Gerberg is a keen political and social observer, whose curiosity, compassion, and razor-sharp wit has informed his work for over 50 years.

Fantagraphics Underground is proud to present this handsome career retrospective of Gerberg’s magazine cartoons, sketchbook drawings, and on-the-scene reportage sketches.
