Indianapolis, IN (July 29, 2013) — Q: How many editors does it take to screw in a light bulb? A: Only one; but first they have to rewire the entire building. For this special issue, the cartoon editor of The Saturday Evening Post strip-mined the past 10 years of the magazine for the very best and funniest cartoons.
This limited edition special interest publication from The Saturday Evening Post contains more than 300 cartoons old and new in 16 sections ranging from the classic (work, marriage, aging) to the just plain weird.
“Cartoonists aren’t merely the court jesters of the modern world; they are also our philosophers” said Steven Slon, Editorial Director, The Saturday Evening Post.
The Post’s Special Humor Issue goes on sale August 13 at Barnes & Noble and other national retailers. Readers can also purchase copies online or by phone. To order, please call 1-800-558-2376 or visit shopthepost.com.
