The rejection collection of all the pictures, cartoons and illustrations does not mean a failure or unsuccessful of products. It may be due to the suitability for the main title of the particular weeks. I appreciate all the products which really pay 100% heart to produce it. I believe this is a great book ever to let us have a chance to recognise more illutrator and their pictures.
I have a chance to buy Istvan Banyai's books though Amazon.com before. It is a really great chance for me to know him and his picture. I believe this book can give me a wilder knowledge of cartoons and pictures.

- Some duds, though this is not unlike reading The New Yorker
An enjoyable collection of cartoons rejected by The New Yorker. Often, this rejection appears to be based on sexual, religious, and scatalogical themes too risque for that august publication. Many feature these images: Small piles of feces, vomit, mutant sperm, gender-bending or cross-dressing males, couples in bed, puppets. If that sounds like a good time, you'll want to take a closer look at this volume. The collection is presented as short folios of each cartoonist's rejecta following a questionnaire filled in by each that is generally more entertaining as a blank form than as a completed document.
A good companion piece to Playboy's Kliban, sadly out of print but available here and there on teh intarweb.
