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.
Die Groot Drie bied 'n sonderlinge blik op die opkoms, hoogbloei en uiteindelike ondergang van Afrikaner-nasionalisme vanuit die perspektief van drie wereldklas-satirici: D.C. Boonzaier, T.O. Honiball en Fred Mouton. Die Burger is in 1915 in die lewe geroep om as mondstuk te dien vir Afrikaners wat aan die begin van die 20ste eeu op hul kniee gedwing is deur die Anglo-Boereoorlog, verstedeliking en grootskaalse armoede. In die eerste honderd jaar van die koerant se bestaan het net die drie kunstenaars diens gedoen as spotprenttekenaars. Boonzaier het skerp en raak aanvalle op opponente van die Nasionale Party geloods, en die karikatuurkuns ten volle bemeester; die veelsydige Honiball het lesers se empatie gewek met sy speelse styl; en Mouton se uitbeelding van tipies Suid-Afrikaanse tonele het van hom 'n gewilde humorskepper en belangrike meningsvormer gemaak. In hierdie boek gee Francois Verster, Naspers se maatskappy-argivaris, 'n onderhoudende historiese oorsig van die bydrae wat elk van die spotprenttekenaars gelewer het.

What's the best way to sort your laundry? Why is Facebook so good at predicting what you like? How do you find new music? Readers around the world have embraced Ali Almossawi's whimsical illustrations and his funny, clarifying explanations of complex subjects. In Bad Choices Almossawi demystifies a new topic of increasing relevance to our lives: algorithms. This is a book for anyone who's looked at a given task and wondered if there was a better, faster way to get it done. What's the best way to organize a grocery list? What's the secret to being more productive at work? How can we better express ourselves in 140-characters? Presenting us with alternative methods for tackling each scenario, Almossawi guides us to better choices that borrow from same systems that underline a computer word processor, a Google search engine, or a Facebook ad. Once you recognise what makes a method faster and more efficient, you'll become a more nimble, creative problem-solver, ready to face new challenges.
Every hero needs a villain. But not all villains are dangerous some are incompetent, comical, or just weird. In his follow-up to The League of Regrettable Superheroes, author Jon Morris presents over a hundred of the strangest, most stupefying supervillains to ever see print in comics. Meet D-list rogues like Brickbat (choice of weapon: poisonous bricks), Robbing Hood (steals from the poor to give to the rich), Swarm (a crook made of bees; Nazi bees), and many more. Drawing on the entire history of the medium, The Legion of Regrettable Supervillains affectionately and hilariously profiles oddball criminals from the history of comics.

The original adult coloring book! A New York Times bestseller when it was originally published in 1961, The Executive Coloring Book is crashing the adult coloring book party with its subversive humor. -This is me. I am an executive. Executives are important. They go to important offices and do important things. Color my underwear important.- So begins the dangerously funny classic, The Executive Coloring Book. Originally published more than fifty years ago, this brief and brilliant coloring book skewers the early sixties executive set. If Mad Men made them look glamorous, The Executive Coloring Book casts them in a different hue and invites everyone in on the joke.
Savage. Menacing. Ruthless. Predators get a pretty bad rap. Sure, they prey on helpless animals that never stand a chance, but behind those jagged teeth, powerful jaws, and razor-sharp claws, every predator has a softer side. Maybe even an adorable one. Everyone has compassion for the cute bunny or lamb. But what about their predators who are working hard for their meal? Capturing their prey is a life-or-death game. Just think about the last time you had to hunt for food while hangry. You can understand, right? Including famous quotes from history that give context to these disturbingly cute illustrations, Alex Solis shares his sense of humor while giving readers a way to enjoy the darkest parts of life with a smile. It's time to give theses predators a break! Because, in the end, both predators and their prey play a role. I mean, it's not their fault they were made this way! They're just living off of instincts, doing what comes naturally to them. So rather than turning away from nature, let's celebrate all the animals who complete The Adorable Circle of Life.

Any angler who has ever been out-fished by a beginner with a twig and some twine or questioned whether bass are smarter than he is will be in good company here. Hilarious Fishing Cartoons pokes fun at every kind of angling absurdity. Tiers struggling to tie microscopic flies, bass fishermen who catch more boots than bass, weekenders loaded down with every gizmo and piece of tackle in the shop, and fanatical, freezing ice fishermen doomed to drill and not grill are all represented. Troy's pen is deft and clever, and his one-liners are truly side-splitting. The next time your line gets so tangled you're ready to curse or quit fishing forever, remember these cartoons and you may just find yourself chuckling instead. No one understands the challenges and frustrations of the outdoorsman's life like John Troy, and no one makes the maddening business of hunting so riotously funny. Anyone still kicking himself over a missed shot, anyone wishing that his hunting dog had paid more attention in obedience school, or anyone who has ever been confounded by the antics of a pesky squirrel will enjoy this hugely delightful collection. In typical John Troy style, we are treated to one-panel lampoons of shooters who can't hit stuffed animals, bears that beat up hunters, and ducks that make their own decoys. They're funny because they're true. Hilarious Hunting Cartoons will delight both novice and experienced hunters and will make an excellent gift for yourself or a passionate hunter you know.
Edited by 'Private Eye' cartoonist Nick Newman, this is a hilarious celebration of five decades of classic comic art. It features over 1500 cartoons in total, including some of the funniest and most influential, as well as those which have been forgotten over the years.
Just what is your cat thinking? As it gazes up at you, are those eyes filled with love and admiration or spite and scorn? From the author of the award-winning 101 Uses of a Dead Kindle and If Dogs Could Swear comes a hilarious insight into the twisted, venal, self-serving psychology of our cutest four-legged sociopaths. Catology is a psychiatrist's view of your moggy, a brilliant, unforgettable and twisted look at the many bizarre, ridiculous and instantly recognisable scenarios in which cat owners find their beloved pets every day.
Page Six in the New York Post is a must-read for any New Yorker interested in the latest celebrity gossip, political scandal, or general dirt about the rich and famous. For almost a quarter of a century, the middle of Page Six was filled with the cartoons of Sean Delonas, and now, for the first time ever, Sean Delonas: The Ones They Didn't Print and Some of the Ones They Did collects Sean's favorite cartoons from his days at the Post, as well as some that the paper never printed. Delonas lampoons politicians, sports figures, pop culture, and celebrities and spares neither liberals nor conservatives in his provocative cartoons. From Obama, Clinton, Bush, and Romney, to the Kardashians, Michael Jackson, Lindsay Lohan, and Donald Trump, no one is safe from Delonas's humorous eye. From cartoons about terrorism, the Olympics, professional sports, Hurricane Sandy, the Mafia, and gay marriage, Delonas has always pushed the limits with his art, which is often politically incorrect and frequently over the top. This collection of over two hundred full-color cartoons, along with a foreword by former New York Post music critic Dan Aquilante, is a must-have book for any New York Post fan or cartoon enthusiast.
Whether you've had one yourself or just noticed someone else's, there's nothing more awkward than a badly timed boner. The hardest part (ahem) is trying not to laugh...

Lo! On the second day, God said: let there be light entertainment. And thus were monks created!; A book for atheists, agnostics, and perhaps a few believers too, The Secret Lives of Monks is your chance to join the only cult that promises more fun than a deep-sea baptism.; The monks might not help you save your soul but with their mixture of philosophy, stupidity, wit and irreverence, they might just make you laugh.
2016 was not only the year of Brexit, the most important and contentious political event in Britain for decades. It was also the year of Trump and a tempestuous US presidential campaign, the European migrant crisis, NHS junior doctors' strikes, an ongoing terror threat from ISIS in Europe, turmoil in the Labour party, the Rio Olympics, the ascension to power of Theresa May and the rise (and fall, and rise) of Boris Johnson. In Britain's Best Political Cartoons 2016, all these news events and many more receive the satirical treatment of our finest cartoonists. This result is a hilarious, razor-sharp and essential companion to a momentous and tumultuous year.
Edited by ambulatory laff factories Lauren Barnett (Me Likes You Very Much) and Nathan Bulmer (Eat More Bikes), the first volume of an anticipated 196 volume series of the best of funny comics throughout the world features the likes of Phil McAndrew, Box Brown, Madeleine Flores, Zac Gorman, KC Green, Dustin Harbin, Jane Mai, Dakota McFadzean, and Joe Lambert
These casually drawn, perfectly on-point comics by the hugely popular young Brooklyn-based artist Sarah Andersen are for the rest of us. They document the wasting of entire beautiful weekends on the internet, the unbearable agony of holding hands on the street with a gorgeous guy, and dreaming all day of getting home and back into pajamas. In other words, the horrors and awkwardnesses of young modern life. Oh and they are totally not autobiographical. At all. Adulthood Is a Myth presents many fan favorites plus dozens of all-new comics exclusive to this book. Like the work of fellow Millennial authors Allie Brosh, Grace Helbig, and Gemma Correll, Sarah's frankness on personal issues like body image, self-consciousness, introversion, relationships, and the frequency of bra-washing makes her comics highly relatable and deeply hilarious.
