I thought some of you would enjoy this cartoon in the Nov 29, 1954 edition of Newsweek with the release of Fellowship of the Ring.

Urulöké,

Did they review the book as well?

Love the illustration, and it does look like the illustrator had read the book, which for the US release was about 1 month earlier, but had a very vivid imagination on what Goblins/Orcs/Cave Trolls looked like :)

Nice find! I reckon this might be the earliest Tolkien-inspired cartoon in print.

Is it possible to identify the name of the cartoonist? To me, it appears to read "M. Simont", thus likely being Marc Simont. Perhaps it's easier to read the letters in your original copy, Urulöké?

Definitely M. Simont. I will look to see if the full name is called out anywhere.

Interestingly Newsweek, at least the US version are doing a special Tolkien edition at the moment.

If anyone gets a copy, would be interested to know if it has anything you think is of interest in it.
