Knight, Keith – What A Long Strange Strip It’s Been


What A Long Strange Strip It’s Been

Anybody who is at all familiar with political cartoonists already knows all about Keith Knight. I’m not sure what category he falls in because plenty of his strips are just about everyday things while a few of them are political, but who cares? The important thing is that he’s damned funny. I read his “K Chronicles” and “This Modern World”, and that’s pretty much it for weekly strips these days. Granted, I only started reading this one a few months ago, but it’s good to see that I’m going to have this much fun catching up. My only problem with this book is that he doesn’t include dates on his strips. A minor thing, granted, but it would have been nice to have some reference points. The only one with a date on it is from 9/11/01 and that’s only because it was the only deadline he ever missed (it’s an empty page). Past that, his strips are busy, he has an energetic and cartoony drawing style that makes you smile just to look at it, and he makes a lot of really good points. Can’t ask for much more than that from a cartoonist. Check out his weekly strip here or just visit his website. It’s funny and you can find that out by reading a couple hundred of his strips for free, so what are you waiting for?
