The twenty-seventh volume of this acclaimed series encapsulates the history-making events of 1998 in more than 400 cartoons by top editorial cartoonists from the United States and Canada. Often humorous, sometimes poignant, and always interesting, these cartoons are guaranteed to tickle your funny bone and tug at your heartstrings as you turn the pages.
President Bill Clinton, former White House intern Monica Lewinsky, and Independent Counsel Kenneth Starr dominated the news and the attention of editorial cartoonists throughout 1998, but others drew (pun intended) attention as well. Retired House Speaker Newt Gingrich and wrestler-turned-governor Jesse Ventura became prime targets for pens and brushes throughout the country, while John Glenn, Sammy Sosa, and Mark McGwire provided opportunities to laud, rather than lampoon.
Running the gamut from scathing to sarcastic to sincere, these best editorial cartoons of 1998 feature the year’s Pulitzer Prize, National Headliners Club, National Newspaper Award/Canada, and Fischetti Award winners among its more than 180 cartoonists.
