"My aim was to take the Robert Benchley hero and launch him into the Age of Freud." -- Jules Feiffer "The modern, non-editorial-page cartoon of social and political commentary was pretty much invented by Jules Feiffer." "Jules Feiffer was 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 The modern, non-editorial-page cartoon of social and political commentary was pretty much invented by Jules Feiffer. 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 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 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 [Feiffer] ranks as one of the five most important and influential cartoonists in the latter half of the 20th century.--Rob Clough 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" 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. Mitchell 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 His genius is in bringing larger-than-life societal trends down to the human level. Most characters serve as symbols for something larger, but they never feel anything less than human.--Mason Adams Almost always in the form of near-theatrical monologues or dialogues, "Feiffer" blew poison darts at Cold War-era politics, sexual mores and America's helpless flailing at the idea of normalcy.--Douglas Wolk 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 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
