Now and Then: Martin Filchock

I wasn't familiar with the work of Martin Filchock until I "met" his number one fan, G.G. Faircloth, online in a Yahoo forum. G.G. put me in contact with Martin, and gave me quite a bit of biographical information that she had already collected.

Martin Filchock turned 100 on January 6, 2012, making him probably the oldest working cartoonist today. His "Defective Detective" cartoons appear in Looking Back magazine. G.G. Faircloth's cartoons can be found in Scary Monsters magazine.
