His comic strip “Wildcat” has appeared in Freedom since 1980, and “Sprite” in The Skeptic since 1987.Review:
“It is not only a work of genius, but of great originality, using outrageous knockabout comedy to convey serious ideas ... this strangely effective technique of using utter farce to get below intellectual defences is successful in getting us to face challenges that no mere political pamphleteering could so ... And we anarchists, with our eyes open, must accept that we too can be ridiculous in the passionate pursuit of our ideals.” —Tony Gibson (H.B. Gibson), Freedom
"It’s a great little book, a fascinating insight and an amazing record of Donald’s work." —Simon Chadwick, ccgb.org.uk
"Donald Rooum's work offers an emperor-has-no-clothes critique of contemporary power and foolishness." —Peace News
