New Bill Mauldin Book Announced


I'm happy for any attention paid to Bill Mauldin's cartoons, both from the Willie and Joe era and his later editorial cartoon work. I am also definitely part of the audience for this recently-announced book of his World War II cartoons. There's a really, really wonderful book out there to be done that covers the entirety of Mauldin's at-times jubilant, at-times heartbreaking life as a military cartoonist, then a celebrity and later a crusading editorial cartoonist/reporter, but with as many people invested in certain periods of Mr. Mauldin's life, all of which are true to his legacy as well, I imagine such a book will never happen.
