The New Yorker is the benchmark for the single-panel cartoon. This light-hearted and sometimes poignant look at the art and humor of the iconic drawings shows why they have inspired and even baffled us for decades. Very Semi-Serious is a window into the minds of cartooning legends and hopefuls, including editor Bob Mankoff, shedding light onto how their humor evolves.

A charming, insightful look at some of the people who shape the mythic institution that is The New Yorker. It makes featured cartoons come to life while effectively adding texture to their creators’ perspectives.
