The Boondocks Past and Present: All the Rage.
In THE BOONDOCKS PAST AND PRESENT: ALL THE RAGE (Three Rivers Press, $21.95), the incomparable Aaron McGruder unleashes his supercharged sense of humor on readers with never-before-released Boondocks comic strips. The book includes early drawings and strips that the publisher says have been censored by the media, interviews with McGruder and his own politically charged commentary culled from interviews on various blogs. "The strips presented in the first part represent the end of a satisfying run in newspapers," McGruder writes in the introduction. "You can see there was very little fear of reprisals for inappropriate content. I was deliberately trying to push the boundaries--but not in search of controversy, just some funnier jokes to tell."
