Selected Cartoons by Joe Serrano

Sixty cartoons because we need a good laugh.

World Out of Order is now Available in Paperback and Ebook from Amazon and kobo (ebook only)

Estuary Press is proud to announce the publication of World Out of Order by Joe Serrano with an Preface by his daughter, Nina Serrano. The volume presents 60 cartoons crafted over his long career as a cartoonist.

Joe Serrano, born in Columbia in 1912, emigrated to the United States at age 9. He quit school in the eight grade to go to work to help support his widowed mother and little sister. Even as as a very young school boy, he drew cartoons, letting his classmates see them for a penny a peak. He became a full time freelance cartoonist in 1945 and from then on produced at least 22 rough drafts per week for decades for popular magazines and trade journals of the era. Always thinking about metaphysics, the meaning of life, and the nature of God, he drew the humors of everyday living into cartoons. Now over a hundred years since his birth, his cartoons resonate with the new realities of the 21st Century as if they were created just yesterday.

Below are a few of Serrano’s cartoons to wet your appetite for World Out of Order.
