Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A full-color trouncing of the Bush dynasty from cult-favorite Village Voice cartoonist Ward Sutton, Sutton Impact brings together for the first time the artist's hilarious, irreverent social commentary and his vivid poster art. More than 200 pieces document the flights and folly of an era, from politics to popular music, excoriating the USA PATRIOT Act, John Ashcroft's evangelical songwriting, the Democrats' domestic blunders, and much more.

Sutton is one of the country's most acclaimed political cartoonists, in a group with Tom Tomorrow, David Rees and Ted Rall. Sutton Impact includes a section of post-election cartoons from late 2004 and early 2005.

Review:

"Political cartooning has a long history, and most political cartoonists learn their craft by studying their predecessors. Sutton, however, comes to the field from the world of alternative comics, and much of the pleasure in this work comes from Sutton's deft use of that medium's tools. His approach owes more to Tom Tomorrow, Matt Groening and Joe Sacco than to Pat Oliphant or Herblock. First, his comics are almost always multipanel affairs, either telling a brief story or making a series of related comments on a particular subject. Second, he rarely uses the broadly symbolic or allegorical characters like Republican elephants and Democratic donkeys. His drawing style recalls that of alternative artists like Joe Matt and Chester Brown. Sutton is unapologetically liberal and assumes the same is true of his readers. He is, not surprisingly, savage on Bush and Cheney, and has strips that are anti — Wal-Mart, anti — Katherine Harris, anti-handguns, anti — Rush Limbaugh, anti-Hummer, etc. But his strongest cartoons are the ones where he addresses the mistakes and weaknesses of his fellow liberals: Nader supporters, apathetic fatalists, Democrats who won't stand up for their beliefs and so on. The strips are often accompanied by annotations, which are mostly unnecessary but occasionally amusing. (July)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Review:

"I love Ward Sutton's smart, sharp, funny cartoons. In these grim horrific times, the satiric hilarity of Sutton Impact will cheer you up slightly." Matt Groening, creator of The Simpsons

Review:

"Ward Sutton's satire doesn't just bite, it maims. He's the perfect cartoonist for our discordant times." Steven Colbert, The Daily Show

Review:

"If Ward Sutton wren't so creepily accurate with his cartoons, I would be doubled over with laughter still." Joe Garden, The Onion

Synopsis:

A full-color trouncing of the Bush Dynasty from the cult-favorite Village Voice cartoonist brings together for the first time Sutton's hilarious and irreverent social commentary and his vivid poster art.

Synopsis:

For fans and first-timers, the best of the Village Voice political cartoonist.

Ward Sutton is pure genius. Not only is he an excellent artist-cartoonist, but his political satire is scathingly hilarious. Reading his book "Sutton Impact" got me through the early years of Bush's war in Iraq. He saved my sanity, and I'm grateful for his brilliant work. Highly recommended -- but be aware that it could be considered at least PG13 rated -- not really for young kids. But every thinking adult should buy a copy of this book and read it often. I'm hoping he'll give us another book soon!
