One of the most popular alternative comic strips in the country, "That Darn Chauncey" has attracted a bizarre, almost "cult-like" following, particularly among the homeless and mentally impaired.

Everything Is Swell -- A Collection of "That Darn Chauncey" Cartoons features over 100 hilarious and disturbing cartoons, and a special introduction by Harriet Tubman (famed conductor on the Underground Railroad)

About the Author:

Mr. Henderson is widely believed to be in his late seventies, a bitter old man who emigrated from Argentina shortly after World War II. He is married to his wife "Cookie" and has four children, all of whom are great disappointments.

James Piggot lives in Southern California.

From Booklist:

The daily newspaper funny pages haven't been for a long, long time. So thank god for the Web, where the scabrous likes of Neil Swaab's Mr. Wiggles, David Rees' Get Your War On, Chris Onstad's Achewood, and That Darn Chauncey by one Mr. Henderson have thrived enough to provoke book collections. Chauncey and company are mostly ovals containing two more ovals for eyes. The females are crowned with bows. Chauncey's distaff is Shelia (or, once or twice, Sheila), he has a nephew and niece, and there's also a Chinese pig made out of rectangles, circles, and a triangle. The characters' relationships with one another, in the occasional "Ask Professor Science" episode, and with some extortionist Girl Scouts, are fraught with exploitation, cruelty, insensitivity, cowardice, and bad thoughts. Hence, each three-panel strip stands a good chance of being hilarious. To be sure, this is gag cartooning, with everything leading up to the inevitable punch line. Fortunately, Henderson's good at punch lines; try this apothegm: "The road to Hell sucks if you're taking the bus." Ray Olson
