(W/A/CA) Charles Rodrigues
Culled from the pages of National Lampoon, this is Fantagraphics second collection of the work of Charles Rodrigues, one of the most audacious, taboo-busting cartoonists who ever lived. There is no example of human suffering, tragedy, or absurdity that is off limits. The cartoons are hilarious and yet without a drop of rancor, even the chapter titled 'Good Ways to Kill a Rock Performer.' This is a welcome re-examination of one of the great, under-appreciated and quintessentially American cartoonists.
