Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Jay Lynch (b. January 7, 1945) is an American cartoonist who played a key role in the underground comix movement with his Bijou Funnies and other titles. His work is sometimes signed Jayzey Lynch. He has contributed to Mad, and in 2008, he expanded into the children's book field. Born in Orange, New Jersey, Lynch lived for decades in Chicago. Ben Schwartz, writing in the alternative weekly The Chicago Reader, traced Lynch's early years: In 1963, at age 17, Lynch had moved to Chicago from Florida, where he grew up. Working a string of odd jobs to support himself, he wound up manning the service bar at Second City one summer. This was between the theater's skinny-tie Alan Arkin days and the Belushi hippie years. "At that time it seemed like Second City was over," Lynch says. "They had been on Jack Paar, and all the Hyde Park Compass Players were gone... The Realist would come out, and you'd see them taking their improvs from there." Lynch moved into Del Close's old apartment on Hudson.
