Remember the first time?

Bob Mankoff, cartoon editor at The New Yorker, has invited several established cartoonists to talk about their first gags that hit the mark at the magazine.

First up was Mick Stevens, followed by Jack Ziegler. Both are now considered to be part of the “old or at least oldish guard now”, says Mankoff on his New Yorker blog, but they were new once. First-time memories from the cartoonists Roz Chast and Michael Maslin will follow.

Mankoff himself told the story of how he broke through as a cartoonist at the magazine in three parts here, here, and here in 2010.
