The New Year’s Cartoon Books…So Far

This looks to be a fun year for New Yorker cartoon aficionados, with a number of books already listed. Some have cover art, some don’t; some have more descriptive material from the publisher than others, at least one has no descriptive text at all…yet. All books are listed in chronological order:


The Ultimate Cartoon Book Of Book Cartoons
, edited by Bob Eckstein (Princeton Architectural Press). April 2, 2019. A classic cartoon anthology. From the publisher:

“This exuberant collection of cartoons is an enthusiastic love letter to books and bookstores. The cartoons celebrate and critique the literary world through the work of thirty-three of the masters of cartoon art …”

Why Don’t you Write My Eulogy Now So I Can Correct It?: A Mother’s Suggestions by Patricia Marx and Roz Chast (Celedon Books) April 2, 2019. Ms. Marx and Ms. Chast join forces once again. “…One-line witticisms from [Ms. Marx] accompanied by [Ms. Chast’s] full color illustrations…”

Why Did We Trust Him? by Shannon Wheeler (Top Shelf Productions) August 20, 2019. According to his publisher, this collection is “a more personal set of single panel comics.”

___________________________

Excuse Me: Cartoons, Complaints, And Notes To Self by Liana Finck (Random House Trade Paperbacks) September 24, 2019. The cover art isn’t available yet. But here’s some of the publisher’s text:

Excuse Me assembles more than 500 of her most loved cartoons from Instagram and The New Yorker over the past few years, in such distinctive chapters as Love & Dating; Gender & Other Politics; Animals; Art & Myth-Making; Humanity; Time, Space, and How to Navigate Them; Strangeness, Shyness, Sadness; and Notes to Self.

Big She Bang by Marisa Acocella (Harper Wave) October 15, 2019.

Cover art not yet available. Here’s what her publisher has to say about the book:

New Yorker cartoonist Marisa Acocella tells an alternate her-story of the world in a new brilliant graphic book. Narrated by God the Mother and featuring all of the bad-ass women who have been relegated to footnotes, or worse, vilified for daring to speak their minds, The Big She-Bang goes head to head with the big “book written by men about a bunch of men” to tell it like it is.

____________________________

Everyone’s A Critic, edited by Bob Eckstein (Princeton Architectural Press). October 22, 2019

Cover art not yet available, nor is there any text from the publisher. However, I think it’s safe to say that this collection will be filled with the work of New Yorker cartoonists, just like Mr. Eckstein’s Ultimate Cartoon Book of Book Cartoons mentioned at the top of this post.
