Editorial Reviews

Review

"Kidd Millennium won't fix your car or cure my achy-breaky heart, but it might get you thinking." -- Ted Rall, editorial cartoonist, Universal Press Syndicate, 2003

"Kidd Millennium's ‘Uncle Dubya' is timely and persuasive, both humorous and thought-provoking, enhancing our coverage of current events." -- Randall Larson, editor, 9-1-1 Magazine

"The cartoon images, the quality, second to none … beautiful color and clarity—a fantastic fusion of imagery and political editorial." -- Michael McCain, staff writer, Life Imitating Art magazine

More About the Author

As a freelance writer that treats global geo-political issues with the same weight of importance as cartoons and Twitter, Callari has been published by AlterNet, Counterpunch, Albion Montitor, Sacramento News & Review, Scoop.co.nz, Digitial Media Buzz and Inventorspot. 'Kidd Millennium,' an editorial cartoon born of the Internet is the unofficial heir to R.F. Outcault's 19th century newspaper comic sensation, THE YELLOW KID. As Callari's muse and the inspiration, "the kidd" is featured in two books - "Uncle Dubya's Jihad Jamboree" and "Crude Behavior." The world of KM is at its best when taking satirical potshots at abuses of power, the unjust and the absurd. Life would not be as ticklish without the kidd exposing the dirty laundry of the day and wringing it out rye!

Format: Paperback
Ron Callari and Jack Pittman describe themselves as "two '60s sympathizers who have traded in their peace signs for Florsheims but still want to give peace a chance." Callari writes the commentary and Pittman creates the illustrations. Together, thanks to their fertile imaginations, they take political commentary, irony and satire to new heights. The star of their joint effort is Kidd Millennium, a sly, wisecracking, bediapered baby who delivers "platitudes with attitude." Callari, Pittman, and Kidd have a devoted international following and it's no wonder. But I suspect the politicians skewered by this feisty Kidd and his pals are less than thrilled by Callari and Pittman's war of words and images. If this book does not make you smile or make you mad, or both, nothing will.

Both commentary and illustrations are excellent so I had trouble choosing review content. A few of the highlights for me included the following commentaries:

· the electoral college -- where party cronies elect the president and not the voters;

· continuity of government -- better known in the beltway as the Shadow Government -- where only Republican members of the Executive Branch are allowed to survive to govern in a post-apocalyptic America;

· zealots in training -- whose families are paid because their loved one agrees to martyr himself or herself in the name of jihad and Allah;

· strange bedfellows -- the evildoers who are anathema today are the "informers" the U.S. paid handsomely for information and favors yesterday.
