Glenn Greenwald says of Matt Bors, who is often featured on Truthout, "Bors embodies the highest virtues of political cartoonists: fearless, provocative satire and cutting, acerbic insights. He's also unfailingly funny."

Bors, in his preface to his new book, "Life Begins at Incorporation," is a bit more blunt about his professional mission: "The world is run by assholes. It’s been this way for some time now. Sometimes the only thing you can do is mark up public surfaces and get everyone to laugh at the people running things. It’s a small form of resistance, a minor annoyance at best to those in power. But if they insist on doing us this way, I’m at least going to make them come out every morning and repaint the damn walls."

What other book would have a chapter entitled, "Homophobia is Gay"?

Matt Bors

Matt Bors relentlessly skewers the latest absurdities of American politics and culture. From war to religion to obsessive lawn care, Bors' cartoons dissect and expose the news, "avoiding the Donkeys and Elephants of many of his peers," to make readers think and laugh about real issues. Bors' unique cartoons feature a vivid style and biting humor that have earned him a great deal of praise. Drawn! Magazine editor John Martz says that Bors is "one of few in his field whose work redefines what an editorial cartoon should look like."
