Synopsis: Identifies cartoonists, animated films, caricatures, and editorial, humorous, and sports cartoons from around the world, and explores the art of cartooning from artistic, commercial, historical, social, and political perspectives

From School Library Journal:

Gr 9 Up-From ancient graffiti to South Park, this belated update (Chelsea, 1982; o.p.) encompasses general histories of political, panel, and animated cartoons, plus detailed biographies of their creators and a lengthy appended treatise on the humor magazines Puck, Judge, and Life. The work is a combination of alphabetical entries and subject essays; about half are either new or revised to mid-1998, and the coverage, supported by a separate geographical index, is broadly international. A vast number of often poorly reproduced black-and-white and full-color illustrations are also included. Despite a few omissions-neither James Stevenson nor the New Yorker rate entries, Charles Schulz is mentioned only in connection with the animated "Peanuts," and the glossary does not include cartooning jargon-this, along with its companion, The World Encyclopedia of Comics (Chelsea, 1998), makes an entertaining browsing item as well as a uniquely rewarding reference tool for art, history, and popular-culture research.-John Peters, New York Public Library
