As Usual....Excellent !!! 26 Jan. 2008
By Philip S. Wolf - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
As a cartoonist for a small town newspaper somewhere in the mountians of California, every year I purchase: "Best Editorial Cartoons of the Year".

The 2008 edition is aother outstanding volume, and full of wonderful political insight from the year 2007. This series spotlights the best of the best, and they are here: Walt Handelsman, Jimmy Margulies, Mike Peters and Dick Locher. Over 100 other great cartoonists are featured in the pages of this book, and I cannot recommend this series highly enough. This is the Bible of the very best political cartoons of the year, and it is as entertaining as it is educational.

Subjects included in this 2008 edition include: The Presidential Campaign, The Bush Administration, The Economy, Crime and Entertainment. From Dick Cheeney to Britney Spears, nobody is safe from the wrath of these cartoonists. The Iraq War, gas prices and immigration are all under attack in the pages of this book.

From 1972 to 2008; "The Best Editorial Cartoons Of The Year" are THE books on this subject. And if: "The Daily Show" is must-see viewing in your home, this book belongs on your bookshelf as well.

Still the Gold Standard of Editorial Cartoons 18 May 2008
By David Feldstein - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Since the 1980's I have purchased this book. Each year I find it rewarding. I am disturbed at the fact that too many papers do not have regular cartoonists. They are valuable and needed. There is indeed humor, as this collection so well shows, in the foibles of our political life. If you don't have it, buy it. Better still, try to get your library to get this and past issues. It is a valuable resource.

Solid entry in the series. 10 Feb. 2009
By Reading Junkie - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Another solid collection of political cartoons, as edited by Charles Brooks. Many of the cartoons deal with our historic election of Barack Obama as our president. Also covered are Hillary Clinton, the war in Iraq, "W," etc.

My only complaint? I wish there would be more cartoons present in these books. I love editorial cartoons, and this book could be double the size and I'd still want more!

As much a classic as the preceding volumes 3 May 2004
By Midwest Book Review - Published on
Format: Paperback
Compiled and organized by Charles Brooks, Best Editorial Cartoons Of The Year 2004 Edition is the Pelican Publishing Company's latest annual anthology of editorial cartoons. Here is a very highly recommended compilation of political cartoons which are keenly in touch with the current pulse of modern history. Featuring the black-and-white work of award winning cartoonists, along with a very brief recap of the current events directly relevant to each section of cartoons preceding the wry masterpieces themselves, Best Editorial Cartoons Of The Year 2004 Edition is as much a classic as the preceding volumes in this outstanding series and extremely difficult to put down once it's picked up.
