With two cartoons a page and over 300 cartoons in all, The Best of Pugh offers hours of entertainment and a satirical look back on the past year. Pugh's work has been compared to the Telegraph's 'Matt' and Metro's 'Brook' and is currently the Mail's daily cartoonist. His exposure within the paper has increased so much that his cartoons feature 3 or 4 times throughout the Daily Mail each day, offering an often immediate satirical reaction to the stories which they appear next to. Pugh's work has gained him a loyal following of news-fiends and cartoon aficionados alike -- making this collection a true must-have for old fans of Pugh -- and a great introduction for new ones, too.
