Mayor Daley by Ron Cobb


Lately, I have seen lots of writing about Ron Cobb.

The first time I saw his work was in "A History of Underground Comics" by Mark James Estren in the early 70s. I didn't see his work earlier because at that time, he was mostly publishing in underground newspapers. Unfortunately, at that time, American underground newspapers were not available in Communist Yugoslavia.

I immediately fell in love with his work not only because of the quality of his drawings which are very close to my heart, but also because of his ideas and concepts. Maybe then I was not lucky to have access to underground newspapers, but today I am lucky to have one of his originals from that time. What is quite fascinating about his originals is that how small and detailed they are. Even his signature and copyright line are extremely small on the original, and they are handwritten.

Ronald Ray Cobb (1937 – 2020) was an American-Australian artist. As well as being an editorial cartoonist he worked on numerous major films including Dark Star, Star Wars, Alien, Raiders of the Lost Ark, Conan the Barbarian, Back to the Future, The Abyss, Total Recall, and Southland Tales. He had one credit as director, for the 1992 film Garbo.
