Overview

COLLECTION OF SURREAL AND HILARIOUS CARTOONS BY THE PROLIFIC BRITISH CARTOONIST, ILLUSTRATOR & CARTOON EDITOR OF THE SPECTATOR

The 21st century has most cartoonists stumped. How on earth do you satirize these crazy times? Michael Heath, almost alone among his peers, has succeeded. His uncanny ability to spot emerging trends has made his "Battle for Britain" strip both very funny and oddly prophetic. Heath uses cartoon characters from yesteryear; men and women from the 1950s, but often distorted and placed in a modern setting. The result is surreal and hilarious; a piece of social commentary that gives us a rare objective look at what we’ve become.
