Jules Feiffer: When Feiffer, a cartoonist and writer, asked his mentor, Will Eisner, for a job, he said he would work for no money. That alone might have guaranteed his success. He started working on Eisner’s comic strip, The Spirit, at age 16, and soon proved he could do more than write balloons based on Eisner’s storyline. In 1947, when Feiffer was 18, he started his own comic strip, Clifford, which launched in 1949. He became famous for another strip, Feiffer, and won a Pulitzer Prize for editorial cartooning in 1986.
