The Boondocks took the syndication world by storm. The notoriety landed Boondocks creator Aaron McGruder in publications ranging from Time magazine to People magazine which named him one of the "25 Most Intriguing People of '99." Centered around the experiences of two young African-American boys, Huey and Riley, who move from inner-city Chicago to the suburbs (or the "boondocks" to them), the strip fuses hip-hop sensibilities with Japanese anime-style drawings and a candid discussion of race. In this first collection of Boondocks cartoons, you'll discover the funny yet revealing combination of superb art and envelope-pushing content in one of the most unique strips ever.


  • Great comic, horrible quality

    Been a fan forever and eagerly bought this, but the quality of this book is abysmal. I only gave it two stars because I support Aaron's cause. In reality it deserves no stars. Some strips look good, some look like they belong wrapped around Bazooka gum. I wonder if Aaron had anything to do with this because this looks like it was cobbled together by an amateur.
