Mort Gerberg broke into print with irreverent drawings in The Realist in the early ’60s, whose social-justice-minded—and bitingly funny—cartoons have since appeared in all major magazines, including The New Yorker, Playboy, and the Saturday Evening Post. As a reporter, he’s sketched historic scenes like the fiery Women’s Marches of the ’60s and the infamous ’68 Democratic National Convention.
Above all, Mort Gerberg is a keen political and social observer, whose curiosity, compassion, and razor-sharp wit has informed his work for over 50 years. Fantagraphics Underground is proud to present this handsome career retrospective of Gerberg’s magazine cartoons, sketchbook drawings, and on-the-scene reportage sketches.
"To say Mort Gerberg’s cartoons are timeless is almost an understatement." — AM New York
"Gerberg's cartoons from 30+ years ago often carry a contemporary thematic relevancy, and his more recent ones don't shy away from incisive political or social commentary." — Gothamist
