An earlier Rubin on this blog, #1 here. On Rubin, from his website:

Leigh began his cartooning career in 1978 by establishing his own greeting card company, Rubes Publications. His first cartoon collection, the popular Notable Quotes musical cartoons, was published in 1981.

In 2009 Leigh celebrated the 25th anniversary of RubesĀ® with the publication of The Wild and Twisted World of Rubes, a “best of” collection which contains 240 of his personal favorites out of over 9,500 cartoons.

Originally self-syndicated, Rubes is now distributed by Creators Syndicate to more than 400 media outlets worldwide. Rubes appears in major daily metropolitan papers
