Book Description

Sept. 1 2004
Shoe, one of the most popular comic strips ever created, continues to delight millions of readers in hundreds of newspapers from Tijuana to Timbuktu.

Edited by Chris Cassatt and Susie MacNelly, 27 Years of Shoe contains hundreds of cartoons from the Shoe collection, and is just as lively, vital, and vibrant as it was under the direction of Jeff MacNelly, whose death in June 2000 truly signaled the end of an era. Plenty of MacNelly extras pepper the book, including actual (and critical, of course) notes from Jeff's teachers, as well as photos and warm remembrances of the creative genius who won three Pulitzer Prizes for his editorial cartooning and two Reubens, cartooning's highest award, for Shoe.

But best of all, 27 Years of Shoe includes year after year of Shoe, Perfesser Cosmo Fishhawk, Skyler, and Roz-along with Senator Batson D. Belfry, Irving Seagull, Wiz, Loon, and more-squawking, diving, and flying hard through life's ups and downs. Through the decades, Shoe has proven both successful and memorable, a tribute sure to be shared by this MacNelly collection.

4.0 out of 5 stars 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.

4.0 out of 5 stars 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!

2.0 out of 5 stars 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.

5.0 out of 5 stars 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.
