Daryl Cagle is turning up the heat on the debate of which “best of” book is, well, best. With the recent release of Charles Brooks’ Best Editorial Cartoons of the Year 2007 (BECY), Daryl, who creates the The Best Political Cartoons of the Year 2007 (BPCY), is challenging readers of his blog to count the exact number of cartoons in each books to determine which book has the most cartoons. The first two with the accurate number wins a copy of his book that contains an original drawing on the back page. Additionally, he’s also challenging readers to count how many cartoons that dealt with the Muhammad Cartoon issue from each book. Again winners receive copies of the books with an original drawing.
I’ve stopped collecting Brooks’ book a few years ago and I’ve yet to pick up a Cagle BPCY, so sounds like it’s time to give it a look-see.
