Not my favourite Horacek collection but still pretty great. Cartoons with a side of sadness this time! More than ever! I first started reading Horacek in the 90s and it's pretty funny to think that there I was, a 10 year old girl, into feminism (my mother had always been explicit about what feminism is, and why we need it) reading all these comics about being a woman who exists in society, and thinking "I relate" even though I'd never had to make a presentation in the corporate world in front of a bunch of men who'd only think my idea was good if it came out of someone else's mouth and that person was a dude specifically. But I definitely recognised the injustice of it. Out of all the newspaper cartoonists, Judy Horacek always felt like the one whose cartoons were closest to my actual life, and the life I saw myself having. Also, Where Is The Green Sheep is damned cute. Let's hope Judy continues to get work in this fragmented world.
Judy Horacek is my favourite political/ climate change cartoonist. This is another of her bright and poignant collections that still pack a punch. I'll borrow it again from the library sometime when I need a dose of her humour.
Appealing whimsy from Horacek. A fair amount of the work touches on political subjects, but many of the cartoons are just silly in a good way. I love Horacek's style (and the intro from John Clarke, which he must have written just before he died).
