The Best of Alex- One of the Best Year End Treats.,
This review is from: Best of Alex 2013 (Paperback)
One of the great things about the end of the year is the release of Annuals and the Rupert Calendar.
But one thing I always look forward to is the release of the Best of Alex.
A great big fat wodge of Alex cartoons by the wonderful Charles Peatie and Russell Taylor.
These cartoons are brilliant, sharp, current, cruel and oh so true.
The world of banking is revealed for all it is.
We may laugh at Alex and his world but is the real laugh on us, the public who pay for the banks to be pulled out of trouble and YET still get a great big fat bonus?
It seems to me and the rest of the non banking public that bankers get bonuses whether they win or loose money.
But that is the genius of the Alex series Peatie and Taylor deal with a real subject and make it funny.
In just 3 frames the punchline is delivered and so well.
