If all reviews were like this, I'd be a happy man
The CBC's always great Arts website has a feature up now on The Collected Doug Wright: Canada's Master Cartoonistthat is fairly mind-blowing. The writer (Martin Morrow) really nails most the themes/ideas that we discussed as we were working on the this volume. Plus, there are more than a dozen images from the book and many great quotes from Seth about classic-era cartooning and Wright's significance.
(This is an enlarged Wright drawing that was embellished by Seth.)
It's definitely worth a gander.
Oh - and you can buy the book online here. Or wait a few months, and buy it here and then get is signed after this.
