Medicinal Hilarity April 23 2009
By tvtv3 - Published on
Format: Paperback
The subtitle to SUTURE SELF: A BOOK OF MEDICAL CARTOONS BY NEW YORKER CARTOONIST LEO CULLUM sums up what is contained in the book. Like previous cartoon books by Cullum, the book is 128 pages long 62 cartoons. The book contains an introduction (disclaimer) by Cullum. Medical doctors, eye doctors, psychiatrists, and dentists are used for laughs in this book. Yet, there are some cartoons that also provide some humor from a doctor's point of view, such as the one that has a doctor with his head lamp divided into a pie chart illustrating just where his funds go: a tiny fraction for "me", equal shares for "taxes" and "equipment", a bit larger share for "staff salary" and "office rental", but the majority of the pie goes to "malpractice insurance". I enjoyed most of the cartoons in the book, even though I don't have a favorite. Cullum is one of only a handful of artists for THE NEW YORKER that actually draws a cartoon that makes sense and for that SUTURE SELF and any other book by Cullum is worth taking a look at.

I love the cartoons from the New Yorker magazine. I own several books of these cartoons, and they are guaranteed to bring a laugh.

Funny, as you would expect from the New Yorker and the cartoons are different from different cartoonists, not repeating themselves.

Actually expected a little more - some cartoons that really got my attention, but they were all still very well done.
