I was sad to hear of Playboy cartoonist Eldon Dediniâ€™s recent passing. That happened right after Fantagraphicâ€™s announcement that theyâ€™re doing a coffee table book on him, too. Dedini is ofen identified as a Playboy cartoonist but he also did cartoons for The New Yorker, Esquire, Look and illustrated books like Max Shulmanâ€™s Rally Round the Flag, Boys! And, Dedini did some great cartoons related to â€œThe Unholy Marriage of Art and Comicsâ€. To see some of those click on the Charlie Brown below to start the show!
