Cartoonist and SVA faculty member Jason Little has started a daily strip featuring a homeless man, Borb, beset by health issues done in the style of classic newspaper comics of the 1920s-40s, but with a distinctly modern sensibility. Fans of the medium should definitely check out Little’s mix of old and new.
