CARTOONS ON BOND

If your vibe is whimsical satire of spy classics, check out this fun duo below. 007 doesn't always translate to editorial or humor gags well, with Bond-isms often used in trite ways. But it's hard to go wrong with Mac and Roz Chast. The first cartoon was published in 2010, during the auction of one of the 007 Aston Martin cars, by Stanley McMurtry ("Mac") MBE. McMurtry was born in Scotland in 1936 and has been a regular contributor to the Daily Mail for over forty years. He is known for working his wives into his gags, to great effect here spoofing Bond's gadget-filled DB5 from Goldfinger. Wonderful timing! The second is by long-time New Yorker cartoonist, Roz Chast, who shines her quirky sociological lens on the economy and how cutbacks would impact Bond's lifestyle. Enjoy! Avengers fans, don't miss our feature interview with Michael Richardson here.
