Comic Riffs on live cartooning events
AN OPEN REQUEST: As convention season kicks off, bring on more live cartoon performance
By Michael Cavna

There's a link to watch the hour-long literary death match of which Cavna says, "The Cartoon Death Match pitted such political cartoonists as [Mike Peters,] Mark Fiore, Jen Sorensen and Keith Knight in spontaneous drills at the drawing board — with comics/publishing figures Dean Haspiel, The Beat's Heidi MacDonald and The Post's Gene Weingarten serving as judges. The scene played like a mix of great anecdote-sharing and quick wits between bouts between world-class Pictionary artists." I was there, and enjoyed it a lot.
