Murphy, NC (PRWEB) November 15, 2012
The Monday Funnies is now in cartoon book form! Jack Cassady’s internet/e-mail feature showcases his own brand of humoresque which include cartoons and the daily funny bread of idiotic news, pompous pictures and stuff that the world cannot manage to hide from Cassady’s selective eye. It can now be appreciated via Jack Cassady’s the Best of Monday Funnies & More – a classy, artfully done and kookily illustrated compendium of some of the cartoonist/writer’s best works.
The world would simply be less interesting without Cassady’s amusing view of it. His lampoons and re-makes of popular culture banalities are, by themselves, a wondrous cure for minds tired of the myopic, unimaginative and superficial. Make no mistake, his humor is a form of serious commentary on what might be ailing western pop - culture. His subject matter, though, runs the gamut of everything under the sun. His chapters, from the first (“From the Edge of the Grid”) to the last (“Holiday Humor”) will brighten anyone’s day, chase away the doldrums, and provide a spicy breath of fresh air.
Like the best of surgical experts, Cassady slices through to the kernel, the wit of the matter, with delicacy and precision. Be one of those who have discovered the joys of Cassady’s world in the semi-immortal form of print. The pictures/cartoons themselves are a collector’s dream. No reader who has gone through Jack Cassady’s the Best of Monday Funnies & More will fail to be a person who has changed for the good, the true, and the beautiful.
