Quartz: A new website makes it easy to license cartoons for your slideshows. “Bob Mankoff is on a mission to build the ‘Amazon for cartoons.’ With a new venture Cartoon Collections, the 74-year-old longtime New Yorker cartoon editor wants create a one-stop shop for anyone looking for a jolt of graphic humor. The online image bank features works by more than 70 cartoonists whose work have appeared in The New Yorker, Esquire, Playboy Magazine, and National Lampoon.” I don’t often cover ecommerce/licensing type sites, but I love the sliding scale for the licensing costs.
New-to-me, from Jonathan B.: The Poopsheet Foundation. It is not what it sounds like. From the home page: “A virtual archive of mini-comics, fanzines, small press comics, newave comix and related items. The physical archive, housed at PF headquarters, is being built with personal acquisitions as well as generous donations from supporters. This project is most definitely a work in progress.”
