My brilliant, conservative, cartoonist buddy, Rick McKee has just announced a big new book of his work, shipping in late November with pre-orders being accepted now! (See some samples of Rick’s cartoons below, and visit his archive on Cagle.com.)

cover mock up FB2It’s a 224-page hardcover, color, coffee-table collection of some of his best work since he began drawing for The Augusta Chronicle in 1998. The book kicks off in the Bill Clinton years and takes off from there, through the Bush and Obama presidencies with lots of social issues, sports and some local topics thrown in as well.

McKee is known for his hard-hitting conservative cartoons, but there is something for everyone in this book, with a foreword by Pat Sajak, host of the popular, long-running TV game show, “Wheel of Fortune,” and lover of political cartoons. There’s also a step-by-step, behind-the-scenes look at how McKee creates his cartoons. The link to pre-order the book at a discount is http://mckee.cartoonistbook.com

 

03 TOON OBAMA

Rick says, “President Obama has presided over the era of Islamic terrorism. He just can’t bring himself to say the words.”

 

02 TOON BUSH

Rick says, “President Bush was fun to draw, but his presidency was a dark time with 9/11 and the Iraq War. I think a lot of satirists struggled to find the humor in the daily news.”

 

01 TOON CLINTON

Rick says, “I was fortunate to begin my cartooning career as President Clinton’s troubles exploded. His numerous ‘bimbo eruptions’ were like cartooning manna from heaven.”
