Occasionally, I bid on items at Heritage Auction‘s Internet auctions.
One of the lots included many comic art portfolios, and included in the lot was a portfolio from Sojourn magazine.
From what I can discover online, Sojourn was a newspaper-sized comic magazine featuring many notable comics cartoonists (as seen below). Joe Kubert had planned the series to help fund his school, but the unusual size was difficult to merchandise, and only two issues were published.
Given the talent involved, this probably deserves a nice archival/historical reprinting.
In the meantime, I’ve scanned the portfolio (at 300 dpi) and present it below. Myself, I’m most intrigued by Sergio Aragonés “T. C. Mars”.
T. C. Mars, Very Private Eye
Kingdom of the Maggot
E. V. Race, Private Investigator
I’ve been writing for The Beat since July of 2010.
I’ve been reading comics since 1974, collecting since 1984, and spreading the graphic novel gospel since 1994.
I’m a bookseller, a librarian, an amateur scholar, a cool uncle, and a comics evangelist.
Ask me anything!
