Praise

“The first collection of his comics in more than 50 years, All Your Racial Problems Will Soon End – which takes its title from one of his ever-caustic captions – invites the reader to roll their eyes at society’s absurdities and ponder what’s changed since the ’70s. Some of his comics memorialize a long-past cultural moment, while others remain glaringly relevant. All feature his characteristic sharp wit and supple line.” —Etelka Lehoczky, Books We Love 2022, NPR

“The cartoons are blunt, in-your-face, and, often, still funny-and-fresh lampoons of racial mores and manners. . . .these crafty single-panel drawings resonate with rueful nostalgia, roughhousing wit, and. . .some eerie convergences with present-day turmoil. . . . An illuminating, warmhearted souvenir of a tumultuous era.” —Kirkus Review

“Johnson has maintained his visual creativity, pushing limits, inspiring and illuminating with sly humor and biting insight. . . .The brilliant cartoon which inspired the title is shocking genius, sure to elicit uncomfortable, unavoidable laughter . . . exactly what this collection should do for lucky readers.” —Terry Hong, Booklist starred review

“Johnson’s caricaturing, deceptively simple art style reflects the broad-stroke political comics of ’60s–’70s funnies—there’s plenty of silliness and romantic/domestic humor, but the apparent breeziness belies their unflinching, often incendiary views and subversive force. . . .This provocative compendium shines a spotlight on Johnson’s essential contributions to comics’ literary history.” —Publishers Weekly
