The Geese Get Inked

Inked, a collection of cartoons and more from one of the New Yorker’s most beloved cartoonists, is officially available, and we geese have a few favourites to share.

A black and white single-panel comic. A woman walks past a "Five Guys" store front. Through the window, we see the store is empty except for five guys standing in the middle of the room.

“Not only did this one make me laugh out loud, it reminded me of a happy memory. We don’t have any Five Guys in New Brunswick, so the first time I visited one was on a trip to Toronto to see the comedy band Ninja Sex Party in concert. I was very confused that they had peanuts everywhere that you could just chow down on – at Five Guys, not at the concert; that would have been even weirder.” — Aurianna McLaughlin, Data and Ecommerce Coordinator

A black and white single panel comic. Two fencers have faced off, the fencer on the right has lunged forward holding a pizza cutter instead of a rapier. His opponent looks down to see a pizza slice-shaped whole is missing from his side. The missing pieces sits flatly on the floor.

“The pizza slicer-rapier got me from the beginning. It’s amazing how Joe can make you hear that sharp intake of breath with a few pen strokes!” — Julie Scriver, Creative Director

A black and white single-panel comic. Three contestants and a host stand at their podiums on the stage of a game show. Behind them, a sign reads, "Facts Don't Matter!" The host says, "I'm sorry Jeannie, your answer was correct, but Kevin shouted his incorrect answer over yours, so her get the points."

“This cartoon is the best representative of life in the world of COVID-19 deniers, Trumpers who won’t accept that Trump isn’t still president, people who take medical advice from random posts on the Internet, and where every news story is fake news. Oh, and the guy who screams the loudest is the one everyone believes (even if he’s an orange clown with a comb-over).” — Angela Williams, Publishing Assistant

A black and white single-panel comic.  A middle-aged couple stand in their living room next to a handyman. The handyman is pointing out towards the viewer and saying, "Here's the problem - your fourth wall is broken. That's why you keep seeing all those people out there."

“What I appreciate about this piece is its cleverness in breaking the fourth wall. Sure, yes, other comics have tried for the same gag, but Joe Dator imbues it with satisfying layers. His characters quite literally live on the page, their home suddenly being peered into by readers on the day it was published.” — Jeff Arbeau, Marketing Manager

A black and white single-panel comic. In a desert scene, an homage to the ending of the movie Se7en, Mr. Met, a mascot with a baseball for a head, is holding a gun on a non-descript man. He asks a third man, "What's in the box." The third man stands in the foreground with a massive box, opening it to reveal the top of a large baseball. The caption reads, "Game Se7en."

“Joe Dator describes Mr. Met as “a monstrosity, a grotesque hybrid of human and sporting goods equipment.” Nowhere is this more true than in his cartoon “Game Se7en,” in which Mr. Met is transported into the gruesome final scene of ‘90s psycho-thriller Se7en. The absurdity of Mr. Met and the horror of the scene produce a deeply funny sense of unease. What next? The Phillie Phanatic in Silence of the Lambs? Gritty in American Psycho?” — Alan Sheppard, Managing Editor

A black and white single-panel comic. A man stands in an apartment building hallway looking in through the open door. In the apartment, bowling pins and a bowling ball are scattered in the center of the room and the two residents are riding horses. One resident is holding a bowling ball and asks the man in the hallway, "You can hear this?"

“I’ve lived in enough apartments to know how completely oblivious and inconsiderate neighbours can be. I only hope my neighbours can forgive me.” — Meaghan Laaper, Editorial and Publicity Assistant
