Tough, Though Not Tragic, Year for “New Yorker” Cartoonists

Not tragic because these were all fellows of long careers and advanced years.

Nice Bob Weber tribute from David Sipress

Slightly odd earlier tribute from Mankoff (just let the reader decide if the work seems dated or not).

Even earlier non-tribute to William Hamilton.

I agree that Weber in particular was funny. Have to add that I think we will not see their like again because the single-panel magazine cartoonist gig does not draw on the same decent-sized talent pool it did 60 years ago.
