Why isn’t Sean Bieri King?

One of the most naturally funny cartoonists I’ve encountered in my travels is Sean Bieri, yet I’m betting most of my readers aren’t familiar with his work. He’s a bit scattered across the Web, here and here and maybe elsewhere, but really deserves a more conspicuous showcase. Here’s my bid to bump him up a notch.

[Note that the illo above is from years ago. I’ve seen others use the gag since, but I’m pretty sure Sean came up with it on his own. Click on the image for more of Sean’s great “Meatbeaters.”]

    Oooh, thanks for the links. I’ve always loved Sean’s minis but I hadn’t discovered him on the web yet.

    Here here. (or is that hear hear?) Sean is about the funniest cartoonist out there. I would say he’s underrated but unfortunately he’s mainly just unknown.

    Someone needs to publish a Jape compendium.

  3. […] you don’t know him at all. That’s a shame because Mr. Bieri is a brilliant cartoonist; Scott McCloud thinks so […]

    Best of all, he’s going to be playing Lone Shark, Man of Mystery, in the upcoming live-action Cynicalman movie!!
