While many of Wheeler's cartoons are simply funny gags about cats serving dinner or light bulbs getting ideas of their own, like a dog's nose zeroing in on the crotch of a guest, some of the cartoons uncomfortably hone in on the hypocrisies of modern life and the realpolitik of human relationships. They expose underlying realities that we don't readily admit to ourselves. Don't get me wrong, they're still funny, it's not like you turn the page and you're suddenly reading Foucalt or something, but Wheeler's cartoons often have an extra dimension, a certain heft, that render them inappropriate to being a mere side musician on the page of a magazine. These cartoons are thoughtful and resonant enough to require a venue where they can be solo acts. And in this book, they finally have it.
A must have for any self-respecting fan of alternative 'toons. You won't regret the purchase.
