Public Enemy #2: An All-New Boondocks Collection (Paperback)
Here’s the next big collection of Aaron McGruder’s The Boondocks, the most subversively funny, controversial, and politically engaged strip to be found in America’s comics pages. Featuring Huey Freeman, a radical preteen conspiracy theorist, and his little brother Riley, a desperately cute thug-in-training, The Boondocks skewers targets from George W. Bush and Ralph Nader to Queen Latifah and Bill Cosby. With more than 500 previously uncollected strips—including strips banned from newspapers around the country—Public Enemy #2 is a must-have collection of the sharpest satire being crafted today.
