The comedian Steve Martin shared caption and cartoon ideas, and illustrator Harry Bliss of the New Yorker provided artwork, and together they created this collection of humorous cartoons and comic strips, with amusing commentary about their collaboration throughout.
... a unique book of cartoons that communicates [the authors'] personalities ... A witty creation of a bovine family sitting down to a gourmet meal and one of Dumbo getting his comeuppance highlight the duo’s comedic talent. What also makes this project successful is the team’s keen understanding of human behavior as viewed through their unconventional comedic minds ... A virtuoso performance and an ode to an undervalued medium created by two talented artists.
Light, urbane, and frequently silly, this cartoon collaboration between actor Martin and the New Yorker’s Bliss combines the former’s dry wit and the latter’s whimsical drawing style ... Martin and Bliss stay up-to-date in their humor, and some cartoons land as cheekily pointed ... This refreshing tonic of a collection feels perfect for flipping through on a Sunday after an especially trying crossword puzzle.
