Dust jacket notes: John Canaday of The New York Times called Ed Sorel 'one of the funniest and truest satirical cartoonists alive or dead.' Here, in the latest colleciton of some of his most insightful (and nastiest) cartoons, Sorel is right on target as he takes aim at just about everyone in American society - from politicians to famous entertainers, from consciousness raising to the Internal Revenue Service. Over the past two decades Sorel's loyal following among the readers of the Village Voice, Esquire, Atlantic, Time, Sports Illustrated and New York magazine has watched Ed Sorel draw his own special version of America - an America educated by incompetents, governed by hypocrites, and ruled by the military-industrial complex. Superpen includes some of the most scathing and hilarious of those drawings - his cartoon strips, his takeoffs on movie posters and famous pieces of art, and drawings inspired by some of the most outrageous things famous people have been quoted as saying. Though no one would suggest that Ed Sorel can leap tall buildings in a single bound, there is no question that he is dedicated to 'truth, justice,' and perhaps even his own version of 'the American way.'
