Most Helpful Customer Reviews

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Vincent J. Mulvihill on June 5, 2008
Format: Paperback
As its blurb suggests, TIMFTSPBB is a throwback to the edgier comic cartoons of Johnny Hart and B Kliban (especially the latter); at the same time, it is firmly rooted in the paranoid post-911 culture of modern day America.

Like most successful comic writers, Truman's strength lies in his refusal to spare any philosophy or belief or way of life. His series about racism in the cartoon realm (an example of which includes stick figures running Munch's "The Scream" out of town) is particularly cutting and clever.
