What comes first?Posted: October 19, 2012
Like the chicken versus the egg quandary of who came first, the same can be asked of the single panel cartoon – does the caption or the cartoon come first? Well, at least we can provide an answer to this one – in sorts. The caption comes first (for me), but for others, it’s the drawing that comes first. I recently read this post from Bob Mankoff, chief cartoon editor of the New Yorker, discussing this very topic called First things First (unless they’re second).
