Special section: Kelsie T. Harder’s lost cartoon gem For Whom the Balloon Tows. Last seen in a very limited edition back in 1969. After many, many months, Tangerine Press finally tracked down Mr. Harder, who gave his permission to reprint this forgotten classic of the US small press. Some of you may be familiar with his work in the mighty double issue of Jon and Lou Webb’s The Outsider 4/5. The Webb’s were big fans of Mr. Harder’s work and rightly so. Originally drawn when the artist was a world-weary 19 year old, For Whom… is by turns funny, sad, disturbing, desperate, human.
