Last quote by Bob Mankoff

What I absolutely take satisfaction in is that, as I leave as cartoon editor, I leave The New Yorker and my successor with a bumper crop of new and talented cartoonists who came in under my tenure. To name a few; Liana Fink, Emily Flake, Drew Dernavich, Paul Noth, Harry Bliss, Edward Steed. In the early '90s, the market for magazine cartoons was already not only drying up, but dried up. There was still the Everest of The New Yorker. but the rest of the markets were pretty much the equivalent of foothills.

The most recent quote attributed to Bob Mankoff came from an article called A last laugh: Bob Mankoff will step down as The New Yorker cartoon editor: “I conceived of the Cartoon Bank as a way for cartoonists to make money by licensing the nine cartoons out of every 10 they did that got rejected, often unfairly by obtuse editors like I became. The Cartoon Bank hasn't been a failure, but it hasn't been successful enough to do what I wanted it to do: Provide enough of a supplementary income so that cartoonists could devote themselves full time to cartooning. When it does that, I'll be very proud. Until then, I'm partially proud. Now, even Canadians take offense at being stereotyped as polite.”.
