    In the end, it’s obviously a book that’ll stick with me and would make a worthy addition to your collection. It’s a coffee table book that’s sure to be a conversation starter and would make a great holiday gift for the right person on your list. While the main thrust of this book seems a bit on the depressing side, at the end of the day I actually found it to be uplifting as well. It seems that since the dawn of time, humankind has been on a mission to eradicate itself from the face of the earth, a point which is illustrated on every page of this book. But at the same time, The Great Anti-War Cartoons illustrates that for as long as we’ve been killing each other, there have always been individuals dedicated to pointing out the eternal folly of war. It’s easy to get down on humanity for all of our atrocities and crimes, but to express the desire for world peace through art? That’s something to be proud of. Read Full Review
