"Team Cul De Sac: Cartoonists Draw The Line At Parkinson's"
Edited by Chris Sparks
(Andrews McMeel, 2012)
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Cartoonist Richard Thompson is the creator of the daily news strip, "Cul De Sac," a delightfully loopy series that is the creative heir to "Dennis The Menace," "Little Lulu," "Peanuts" and "Calvin & Hobbs," a cartoon centered in the world of children that rings both weird and true at the same time. The strip debuted in 2004 and has gained popularity for its wit, intelligence and celebratory chaos.

A few years ago, Thompson was diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease and recently (in 2012) took time off his daily duties to seek treatment for the illness. Thompson's high standing in the creative world has led to this book, which is both an homage to his work and a benefit for the Michael J. Fox foundation, which is researching a cure for Parkinson's. Dozens of cartoonists from various creative and professional strata have contributed their work, each putting their own spin on the Cul de Sac characters. It's a fun book - highlights include a painting from Thompson's patron saint, Bill Watterson (a portrait of Petey Otterloop) as well as numerous mash-ups of Cul De Sac and other strips. Fans will find a lot to enjoy here - Thompson's humor translates well in the hands of others, and the appeal and universality of his characters becomes plain when we see them through the eyes of the many members of Team Cul De Sac. Recommended! (DJ Joe Sixpack, ReadThatAgain childrens' book reviews)

Richard Thompson is a comic who tells a story about an average family. What makes this strip remarkable is in the empathy he has for these people. Cul De Sac is a wonderful strip. Team Cul De Sac is a chance for Mr Thompson's contemporaries to pay tribute to the comic and raise money for a good cause. We have seen tributes slipped into strips before such as Patrick McDonnel inserting the Peanuts characters in a museum looking at a painting while Linus is Looking at the image of Earl the dog. This time it is a dedicated panel where the artist draws Cul De Sac characters into their own strip or medium. Alice, her brother Pety and their long suffering parents have a complete makeover in the hands of other artists. It is a wonderful tribute and a great way to be introduces to new artists.

From the first page to the last, one can't help but see the true community artist share with one another, despite the vast differences in the expression of their hearts and words within the confines of its pages. It was a pleasure to be part of such a perfect project. It was an honor to be included with so many astoundingly talented fellow human beings. It was humbling to know this book may help better peoples lives in some way. But it won't be perfect and it will honor no one and it won't better anyones life if stays on the shelf. So, in this, it is my prayer that everyone helps make it all these things and so much more by getting a copy for themselves and their loved ones.

What a fine book! I love cartooning and cartooning art. Team Cul de Sac is page after page (with more pages yet) of clever cartoon illustrations in more styles than you would have thought there WERE. The book is one of those things you can pick up and peruse for a while, enjoy it, set it down, then come back to it hoping there's still a page or two you managed to miss the last time. Just terrific.

Loved it. A truly amazing collection of cartoon art and tributes, beautifully presented. Heartwarming and funny. A portion of the proceeds goes to the Michael J Fox foundation for Parkinson's research. Win win.

This book is worth a hundred times more than the price. I loved it before I even turned the first page. The cartoon community that contributed to this book are all famous with their own cartoons, they took time to put their work in this magic tribute to Richard Thompson and support the Michael J Fox Parkinson's Reasurch Foundation. Please give yourself the gift of this book.

This is a collaboration by about a hundred artists who contibuted their work to honor Thompson and to help raise money for Parkinson's research. The profits from the book and from the sales of the original artwork all go to support the cause. And the cartoons are original and fun. They come from artists ranging from the most well-known to those just staring out. Buy it!

As a child of the newspaper pages, this book has tributes from all my favorite cartoonists, and some new ones that have caught my attention. As a fan of Cul de Sac, I was touched by all the comments and the obvious camaraderie between the artists. Great interpretations of the Otterloops and their world from the greatest people to ever hold an ink pen.
