I was recently given the opportunity to review
cartoonist Keith Knight's new book The
Knight Life: Chivalry Ain't Dead
(ARV $17.99), a 211-page
library of Knight's weekly comic strip "The K Chronicles".
the Hachette Book Group website:The Knight Life is a hilariously
twisted view of life through the eyes and pen of its creator,
community-oriented urban hipster and award-winning cartoonist Keith
Knight. The Knight LifeThe Knight Life
provocative political and social satire, The Knight Life tackles contemporary issues like
consumer culture, bacon, the media, race, family and everything else,
gently mocking the minutiae of daily life with self-deprecating humor,
honesty and goofiness-a combination that's perfect for the comics. And The Knight Life's energetic style
reminds readers that comics can look funny as well as read funny. The
result is accessible yet edgy, compassionate and political-and never
preachy. Cartoonist and comic historian R.C. Harvey said, "The Knight Life is undeniably the
best new laugh- and thought-provoker on the comics page. Not since
Calvin and Hobbes has there been so novel an entertainment in the
funnies." deftly blends political insight and neurotic humor in a
uniquely fluid and dynamic style, offering a comic strip that's fresh,
sharp, topical and funny. Designed for daily newspapers, follows
Knight's long-running, 2007 Harvey Award-winning weekly comic strip "The
K Chronicles," which appears on salon.com.
