With all of the reporting on cartoon editor Bob Mankoff leaving the New Yorker and going to Esquire...
... It's been said that Esquire stopped publishing cartoons in the 1970s. What I haven't read is the fact that they briefly resumed the practice in the 1980s. I had two cartoons in the December, 1987 issue...
... and one in the February, 1971 issue.
The cartoon editor who brought this about was Jay Kennedy. Because we had worked together previously, Jay called me to request submissions. Later on Jay became editor-in-chief at King Features Syndicate, and he included me in their anthology comic panel, The New Breed. He was also sitting on a new comic proposal of mine at the time of his untimely death in 2007.

My Fusco Brothers colorist finally added yellow to an otherwise gray beer.
This is great, but now it points out the fact that I have only myself to blame for making the wine black.
If he had made the highlight on the wine red, we would all be smelling like roses right now.
