Barsotti the Best.,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Essential Charles Barsotti (Essential Cartoonists Library) (Paperback)
I discovered Charles Barsotti when I was given a New Yorker Dog Cartoon diary, and I fell in love. He is, quite simply, a genius of a cartoonist - that most difficult of arts, to be so deep while keeping it looking so simple. His ideas are, by turn, surreal, silly, moving, good-hearted. They are, above all, the kind of funny that has you laughing like an idiot, which is something to bear in mind before you read this book in public. I bought this along with 'They Moved My Bowl', a collection of Barsotti's fabled dog and pup cartoons. If you can't love those, you can love nothing! They are the very definition of charm, and Barstotti is a marvel.
