It is with a heavy heart and an irritable bowel that I put down cartoonist Josh Latta’s new collection, THAT’S A HORRIBLE THING TO SAY, JOSH LATTA! It is bad enough that he name-checks himself in the very title of his book, but that he then goes forth to fill it with pages of his fecal smears and life-denying humor is the height of hilarity. He is the master of the gag in gag cartoon, a figure of such universal hatred that he must be doing something right. I laughed out loud throughout and that made me think: do I have a mental disorder? My conditional is terminal and yours can be, too, if you’re unfortunate enough to read this small, disturbing volume.
“Each comic has the sting of a dirty joke whispered into your ear from your boozehound uncle at a St. Patrick’s Day party. Sure, it seems offensive but they’re just tasteless enough to induce groans and gasps rather than pure gorge-rising bile explosions from less sensitive artists. Latta’s shocks are quick and guilt-free. Nothing is safe. But the horror passes and fades. And perhaps that’s why each cartoon is superimposed on a cocktail napkin. – there is a keen awareness that each comic is only a sweaty hi-ball glass away from being wrapped around a used cherry stem and tossed into the trash after last call.”
PEOPLE HATE HIM! FIND OUT WHY….
The titular phrase of this cartoon collection is the selfsame ejaculation of many denizens of social media who happen to scroll past one of the named artists digitized drawings. Possibly you yourself have seen these graphical hijinx and either recoiled in horror or exclaimed in hilarity. And now… for the first time ever, six dozen of these precious little monsters/gems have been collected in one place! That’s right, now you can get your grubby little mitts on a good old-fashioned book and allow grandma the same experience you had without signing her up for FaceSnap or whatever stupid website everyone is on now in the future when you’re reading this.
THAT’S A HORRIBLE THING TO SAY, JOSH LATTA!
