Description

"Shoe," one of the most popular comic strips ever created, continues to delight millions of readers in hundreds of newspapers from Tijuana to Timbuktu. Edited by Chris Cassatt and Susie MacNelly, "27 Years of Shoe" contains hundreds of cartoons from the "Shoe" collection, and is just as lively, vital, and vibrant as it was under the direction of Jeff MacNelly, whose death in June 2000 truly signaled the end of an era. Plenty of MacNelly extras pepper the book, including actual (and critical, of course) notes from Jeff's teachers, as well as photos and warm remembrances of the creative genius who won three Pulitzer Prizes for his editorial cartooning and two Reubens, cartooning's highest award, for "Shoe." But best of all, "27 Years of Shoe" includes year after year of Shoe, Perfesser Cosmo Fishhawk, Skyler, and Roz-along with Senator Batson D. Belfry, Irving Seagull, Wiz, Loon, and more-squawking, diving, and flying hard through life's ups and downs. Through the decades, "Shoe" has proven both successful and memorable, a tribute sure to be shared by this MacNelly collection.show more

Few people could do as much using both line and word. Susie MacNelly, Jeff's wife and stepmother to his kids, and cocreators Chris Cassatt and Gary Brookins keep Shoe hopping with consistently fresh material and lively art. Shoe now appears in 650 daily and Sunday newspapers around the world.
