Overview

JEFF DANZIGER IS an independent political cartoonist whose work appears in hundreds of newspapers around the world via the New York Times Syndicate. He draws from six to ten cartoons a week on a wide variety of subjects, from international folly to Hollywood hubris. An equal opportunity satirist, he is politically to the left of Genghis Kahn — everyone and everything is fair game. His dark drawings, pull-no-punches humor, and “Danziger” signature line are instantly recognizable to any regular reader of newspaper opinion pages. As with any great political humorist, Danziger’s funniest creations lampoon the most deadly serious subjects. Created in the heat of the moment and collected here for the first time, Danziger’s cartoons of George W. Bush’s ascent to the White House and first term in office amount to a highly entertaining excursion through the national and international political landscape of the past four years. Wreckage Begins with “W” showcases a singular wit and an artist of uncanny prescience.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Political cartoonist Danziger contributes to the cottage industry of books on the Dubya Years with this collection of strips from January 20, 2000, to March 2004, giving a stinging and graphically startling look at recent events. Along with the usual topics-the 2000 election, the horror of 9/11 and the relentless march to war-Danziger also examines such byways of history as Vladimir Putin's strong-arm tactics, Senate legislative activities and what he sees as the continuing excesses of Hill and Bill. While he saves most of his barbs for the right, Danziger takes aim at venal pettiness on both sides of the political fence. Although not a master of caricature, he excels at stark imagery and bold composition that recalls past masters Bill Mauldin and Herblock. For instance, he captures the current Clintons in a powerful image of Bill shooting up with a needle labeled "Sex" and Hillary using one tagged "Ambition." Text beneath each cartoon sometimes gives historical context and sometimes explains the joke. Danziger, a Vietnam vet, aims his most powerful weapons at the politicians who send young people off to war, and current events have provided him ample fodder.

Meet the Author

Frank Miller
A native New Yorker, Jeff Danziger has been cartooning for nearly twenty-five years, starting at the Rutland (Vermont) Herald in 1975, to which he still contributes. He has worked at the New York Daily News (1982-86) and the Christian Science Monitor (1986-96), where he was twice a Pulitzer finalist. He has traveled widely and won an Overseas Press Award in 1993. This year he was awarded the Population Institute’s Press Award for Cartoons on the subject of global population growth.
Danziger served involuntarily in the U.S. Army from 1967-71 and was awarded the Bronze Star and Air Medal for his service as an intelligence officer and linguist in Vietnam in 1970. He has published one novel about the war, Rising Like the Tucson (Doubleday 1991). He has also published ten books of cartoons. In addition to regular political cartoons, his illustrations have appeared in the New Yorker, the Atlantic Monthly, the Times of London, and the American Prospect.
He lives in Manhattan in what has so far (sixteen years) been a committed relationship with a nonsmoking female heterosexual. Plus two cats.

FRANK MILLER is one of today’s leading comic book and graphic novel authors. His creations include the Dark Knight series of Batman stories, and the Daredevil series of books.
