Product Description

About the Author

Jeff MacNelly may not have impressed his boarding-school teachers, but just about everyone after that period stood in awe of his drawing, observation, and general creative abilities. Few people could do as much using both line and word. Susie MacNelly, Jeff's wife and stepmother to his kids, and cocreators Chris Cassatt and Gary Brookins keep Shoe hopping with consistently fresh material and lively art. Shoe now appears in 650 daily and Sunday newspapers around the world.

As a young adult I grew up reading Shoe in the paper comics. I enjoyed reading this book and catching up with it.

For fans of Shoe Oct. 9 2005
By Reader B - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is a nice collection of Shoe over the years, and really for fans of the comic strip rather than a more general audience. Of course, several of my favorites are not present, but the quirky characters are well represented. A surprise was a page of repetitions which was unexpected. The size of the book is a bit awkward for a bookcase. The book is divided by decades, and there are thumbnail pictures of MacNelly and friends, family, and pets.

Left me sort of sad... March 28 2009
By J. B. De Zwart - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I think Shoe is a terrific comic, elegant at times, but this particular collection left me sad, as it focuses a great deal on both Jeff MacNelly and his son's deaths. Seeing all the pictures of Jeff throughout the book, on about every page, serve as a constant reminder of his death and got eerie after a while.

shoe-masterpiece July 12 2005
By Renee Sims - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
this is a great compilation of shoe comics spanning 25 years and accurately represents the work of a fine author. the only thing that kept it from being 5 stars was the fact that it left out some of my personal favorites but all in all a great purchase for any shoe fan or any comic strip fan in general!

Jeff MacNelly is a genius! Nov. 6 2006
By bobbyknightmare - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I work as a reporter and part of the humor in Shoe is that when a friend or family member calls me and tells me about that day's installment, I tell them that things like that happen every day in the office. Jeff MacNelly is right up there with Charles Schultz, Bill Keane and all the other comic artists who can make you laugh just by holding up a mirror to your life. His "Shoe" is to our profession what "Beetle Bailey" is to soldiers and "Zits" is to parents.

As for the book, I can't put it down. I have read it straight through about six times and I always find something new to laugh at. If you buy this book, you will too.
