Sprinkled in between the comics are a few killed illustrations that are extremely tame and shouldn't have been included. But I guess I'm a little biased as to why--I submitted the one cartoon of mine that was killed but it didn't make the cut. In fact, many of the cartoons themselves are tame. It's is a great resource for those interested in political cartooning, but don't prepare to be blown away by the controversial nature of the comics. This book is really a testament to timid Editors and depressing to an artist who sees the various offenses you can't get away with on an Editorial page.
