A satirical masterpiece. -- Roger Sabin A welcome reintroduction - or introduction, for the uninitiated - to a great cartoonist who boldly bent his medium to adult purposes long before it was commonplace to do so. -- David Kamp To read Explainers... is to be reminded of the absurdity of the human situation, something that might be depressing except for the fact that Feiffer's comics will make you laugh out loud. -- Rabbi Rachel Esserman A welcome reintroduction-or introduction, for the uninitiated-to a great cartoonist who boldly bent his medium to adult purposes long before it was commonplace to do so. -- David Kamp A satirical masterpiece.--Roger Sabin A satirical masterpiece. --Roger Sabin If you were a Martian trying to figure out America in the second half of the 20th century, you could do worse than to start by reading Jules Feiffer s Village Voice cartoons. --Sarah Boslaugh" A satirical masterpiece. --Roger Sabin" To read Explainers is to be reminded of the absurdity of the human situation, something that might be depressing except for the fact that Feiffer s comics will make you laugh out loud. --Rabbi Rachel Esserman" One of the most original social and political commentators in America.--Tom Clavin A welcome reintroduction or introduction, for the uninitiated to a great cartoonist who boldly bent his medium to adult purposes long before it was commonplace to do so.--David Kamp" One of if not the first of the early writer/artists to emerge from the comic book ghetto into the literary/art world.--Will Eisner, creator of The Spirit" [Feiffer] ranks as one of the five most important and influential cartoonists in the latter half of the 20th century.--Rob Clough A veritable Bible of middle class American dysfunction...Feiffer reveals the depths of his subject not only through the dialogues--which are filled with psychological, social and politic depths that few cartoonists have ever plumbed--but also through an amazing skill to capture the body language so crucial to human communication...a real masterpiece worth delving into.--John E.
