For One Day We Shall Rule the World
Written by Eric Reynolds | Filed under reviewsJules Feiffer 19 Oct 2008 12:34 PM

  

Today marks something of a milestone for Fantagraphics: our very first -- in 32 years of publishing -- cover of the venerable New York Times Book Review. Featured is Jules Feiffer's EXPLAINERS, in review by David Kamp titled "Cartoons for Grown-Ups" (who'da ever thunkit??). The online version even has the requisite NY Times slideshow. As my good pal Thom put it to me this morning via email, "What's next... a black president?" There is hope. 

But wait, that's not even all! The very same issue of the NYTBR features a full-page review of Jaime & Gilbert Hernandez's recent work, by the critic Douglas Wolk, appropriately titled "The Audacity of Hopey". The piece reviews The Education of Hopey GlassAmor Y Cohetes, and Love & Rockets: New Stories #1
