'Skewed Views Too' continues Roy Schlemme's cartoon exploration of our human faults and foibles. Using everything from wry wit to out-and-out broad slapstick, he intelligently takes the reader on a rambling, merry journey. Beginning, at times, with the most bizarre of premises, Schlemme quickly cajoles even the most somber of us into forgetting our personal problems and laughing out loud at the adventures of his eccentric cast of zanies. Unlike other more traditional cartoonists who, generally, of necessity work small and simple, Schlemme utilizes the larger page along with a more detailed drawing style to enhance the final effect upon readers. There's no single theme from one vignette to the next, but rather a lively bouncing around certain to capture even the most humor-resistant of us. 'Skewed Views Too', with over 150 humorous situations, is sure to find itself one of the more appealing gift-giving ideas and entertaining book options around.
