Just One %$#@ Speed Bump After Another...
by Dave Coverly
ECW Press
ISBN 1-55022-700-9
Published October 2005 - Softcover - 170 pages - $14.95

Another edition of Dave Coverly's cartoons - great to flip through for a chuckle to lighten your load.  I adore Mr. Coverly's work and sense of humor - wry as it may be.  His characters are basic yet subtle and go from cavemen to talking animals, businessmen to bumbling idiots.  I loved the munching judge on pg 96, the wino on pg 156, the B&B on pg 155, and the guy drinking coffee on pg 140.  Check out the funny on pg 97 - I loved it - classic Coverly.  Obviously he's not everyone's cup of tea but I'm sure you'll appreciate his skill at drawing cartoon characters and that you'll get a kick out of his accompanying words and social observations brought to life through cartoons.  There's another Caption Context at the end of the book for all you budding humorists.
Conclusion - Can't wait for the next issue.
