By Jules Feiffer
In 1956, a relatively unknown cartoonist by the name of Jules Feiffer started contributing a strip to the only alternative weekly published in the US, a small radical newspaper called The Village Voice. It was the first time the American public had been subjected to a weekly dose of comics that so uncompromisingly and wittily confronted individuals' private fears and society's public transgressions. Explainers is the first of four volumes collecting Feiffer's entire run of weekly strips from The Village Voice. This edition contains approximately 500 strips originally published between 1956 and 1966 in a gigantic landscape hardcover format.

Jules Feiffer is an astounding, insightful, highly intelligent and raucously funny cartoonist. He writes and draws about psychology, politics, and relationships (between women & men, adults & children, bosses & employees, and politicians and the public). He is phenomenal. Although the book's cartoons date from the 50s and continue through the decades, they are still relevant today. If you like him, I recommend buying the book. That way you can rip out pages & frame them! Yes, they're that good.
