This year we are in for a treat: After 25 years, Madam & Eve is still going strong and are back with more hilarious cartoons looking back at another year of the crazy rollercoaster that is daily life and politics in South Africa.

Zapiro comes of age in this 21st annual.
Zuma once again takes centre stage for all the wrong reasons along with his cronies the Guptas and his nemesis Malema. It’s the year of the hashtag. #RhodesMustFall begat #FeesMustFall, also #Racism/#Sexism and #ZumaMustFall. With Nenegate and SARS wars, it’s the rand that’s really falling. Meanwhile, Pravin and Thuli fight the good fight.
Each cartoon is worth a thousand words and helps us make sense of our crazy, beautiful country where fact is indeed stranger than fiction.
Zapiro needs no introduction. His 19th annual speaks for itself.
No year would be complete without Zapiro’s annual collection of cartoons, and in this latest book of sharp-witted and well-timed cartoons, Zapiro once again proves himself a satirical genius, ensuring that no event passes by without comment … or a laugh.
From the arms deal to the courtroom, from his own wedding(s) to the Gupta wedding, see if you can spot Jacob Zuma in these hilarious cartoons. Find him in the election queue, in Parliament and at Nkandla. Whether he’s travelling in a bluelight brigade or in the darkness thanks to loadshedding, can you see him?
And that's not all. You can also look out for Julius Malema, Helen Zille, the Shaik brothers, Barack Obama, Sepp Blatter, Steve Hofmeyr, Oscar Pistorius and many many more!
If you’re an adult with a political sense of humour, this book is for you. And kids might enjoy it too.
LIVE. LAUGH. LOVE. or
EXIST. SMURK. LURK
Julie Houts has cultivated a devoted following as ‘Instagram’s favourite illustrator’ (Vogue) by lampooning the conflicting messages and images women consume and share with the world every day. A collection of darkly comic illustrated essays, Literally Me chronicles the daily exploits of ‘slightly antisocial heroines’ (Refinery29) in vivid, excruciatingly funny detail, including:
- The beauty routine of a deranged bride who aspires to be ‘truly without flaws’ on her wedding day
- What happens when Kylie Jenner has an existential crisis and can no longer ‘step out’
- A journey to Coachella by the Four Horsewomen of the Apocalypse
- The true dating confessions of a fembot
- The terrifying description for Alice Staunch’s book How to be the Perfect Feminist
Literally Me marks the launch of a brilliant new social satirist. Julie’s singular voice and beautiful illustrations reveal the truth about the absurdity of life in the social media age: the line between becoming a total ‘Girlboss’ and a 21st-century American Psycho is razor-thin.
A Toe-Curling Stack of the Best Bits from Issues 242-251 Mankind's constant need to do better - to climb higher, strive harder and travel further and faster - has been the unstoppable engine of progress that has driven our species on to ever greater achievements since we first crawled out of the primordial soup. Today we think nothing of travelling through space to the furthest edges of our solar system, building giant glass and steel skyscrapers that pierce the clouds, or communicating with people on the other side of the world in the blink of an eye using a smartphone no bigger than an iPod. We have harnessed the power of the wind, the sun and the atom to do our bidding, and our disposable razors increase their number of blades seemingly on a daily basis. Now a thrilling new chapter of Homo sapiens's inspirational story of progress opens with the release of Viz - The Jester's Shoes. For this year's Viz book is the BIGGEST EVER ANNUAL we have ever published! Ever!Viz - The Jester's Shoes is the 33rd annual from Britain's funniest magazine, and is a fantastic 25% bigger than its predecessors, it is a 200-page romp through the best of issues 242 to 251, including... Cartoons: The Fat Slags, Roger Mellie, Sid the Sexist, Mrs Brady, 8 Ace, Biffa Bacon and many more Entertaining and informative features: Life on Mars, Who's Who in Accident and Emergency, the Origins of Christmas and 20 Things you Never Knew about James Bond Thrilling Adventure stories: The Shark Hunters of Hammerhead Bay, Striker's Last Match, The Ghost of Greytowers and Time Travelling White Van Man Letterbocks, Top Tips and much, much more! Viz - The Jester's Shoes will surely go down in history - alongside the invention of the wheel, the discovery of fire and the Ronco Buttoneer - as one of the most important milestones in over 6 million years of human evolution. And unlike the invention of the wheel, the discovery of fire and the Ronco Buttoneer, it also makes an ideal gift for someone in that difficult GBP10 to GBP15 bracket.
It's not easy being a parent these days. There are bills to pay. Kids to feed. And hordes of undead monsters to keep at bay. There are plenty of guides out there about how to survive the zombie apocalypse. All of them assume readers are young, fit, and unencumbered by children. In that scenario, the only living humans left will be smug, outdoorsy Millennials. That's hell on earth, even without the zombies. Only Dead on the Inside is the answer for the rest of us. Written by professional comedy writer and amateur father-of-four James Breakwell (@XplodingUnicorn), Only Dead on the Inside blends traditional parenting advice with zombie survival tips, bringing together two totally unrelated genres in a book no one asked for but everyone needs. This step-by-step manual teaches you how to raise happy, healthy children in a world overrun by the undead. Motivated moms and dads want it all, and that won't change at the end of the world. There's no reason you can't be a zombie killing machine AND parent of the year, but you have to work for it. If you want to make sure your family is apocalypse-ready, Only Dead on the Inside is your best-and only-chance at survival. No pressure, but if you don't read this book, your children will die.

What makes a perfect husband? In this tongue-in-cheek guide, illustrated by Heath Robinson's inimitable cartoons and contraptions, there are many charmingly old-fashioned tips for how to succeed in almost all aspects of married life. First published in 1937, this delightful book gives an insight into how the roles of both wife and husband were viewed at the time and pokes gentle fun at them both. The perfect husband presses his own trousers; he can tend the lawn and entertain the baby simultaneously by means of two simple attachments to the garden roller; he can peel onions behind his back, with the help of a mirror, and thus avoid tears; he can make a vacuum cleaner and he even has a device to help him climb the stairs silently after a late night out with the boys. When offered the choice of a glass of milk or a Manhattan, he will choose the former. With chapters on courtship and proposal, the wedding, early married life, bringing up children, sports and hobbies, domestic difficulties and middle age, this book makes a highly amusing gift for those who are considering tying the knot or wish to celebrate wedded bliss.
Celebrate fifty years of Snoopy with this deluxe hardcover collection!
"Snoopy is the most popular character in the strip. In fact, I think you could make a good case that he's the most popular cartoon character in the world. I suppose that's because what I've done with him is very original. I don't think there has been an animal character in a long time that has done the different things that Snoopy has done. He's an attorney. He's a surgeon. He's the World War I Flying Ace." --Charles M. Schulz
