Time flies when you’re living in a slow-motion apocalypse! I can hardly believe it, but I posted my first cartoon about editing and publishing ten years ago.
To celebrate a decade of esoteric absurdity, I’ve compiled my archive into a print book.
If you’d like a copy of An Editorial Cartoon, you can find one wherever IngramSpark books are sold, including at these online retailers:
- Bookshop.org, which supports independent booksellers in the US, UK, and Spain (hardcover or paperback)
- Barnes & Noble (hardcover or paperback)
If you’d rather get it from your local indie bookstore or library, let them know they can order the book via Ingram Content Group :
- hardcover ISBN 978-1-7782897-3-6
- paperback ISBN 978-1-7782897-4-3
One dollar from each book sold goes toward Indigenous editing and publishing initiatives through the Indigenous Editors Association.
As I put the book together, I was reminded that I didn’t start adding alt text to my cartoons till about 2016, so I’ve taken this opportunity to rectify my longstanding oversight, and all of the comics in my archives should now be fully accessible to everyone who uses screen readers.
The concept for “Hands,” above, came from my spouse, who’d proposed it during the cartoon’s early days—maybe in its first year. I held off on making it because I thought it was too meta. But maybe a bit of self-indulgence is appropriate for a tenth-anniversary celebration…?
Massive thanks to everyone for reading and sharing (and inspiring!) my silly cartoons over the years. I appreciate you more than you could know.
UPDATE (January 5, 2022): Some very sweet people have asked about getting signed copies. I don’t have the capacity to store and mail out signed books, but if you are among the first 40 readers to (a) post a photo of your copy of the book to social media, tagging me in, and (b) send me your mailing address, I’d be delighted to mail you a personalized and signed bookplate.

Iva, this latest cartoon makes me giggle, and the thought of being able to buy an entire book of your cartoons makes me grin with delight. Thank you for always sharing your art.
You are always so supportive, Katharine. Thank you!
This has been added to my wishlist, with strong hints to family members for my birthday in a few months to be coming.
Your cartoons are a joy for my wife and me.
Huge thanks to both of you for reading, Mike!
So fun and a great idea!
