2021… Weren’t we supposed to be back to normal by now?

But with Covid-19 variants raging, political unrest taking over the country, and extreme weather patterns slamming our planet, 2021 is anything but normal. BB BluesBird has survived all of it and continues to tweet his opinions through Ron Hill’s editorial cartoons. 

Hill created BB BluesBird in 2004, as a newspaper comic strip feature. The plucky little avian with big dreams of taking the stage as a blues musician was shopped around to the remaining four or five comic syndicates, to no avail. BB began to appear in Hill’s paintings, personal comics and drawings. The bluesy bird’s journey was continued in a weekly web comic scripted by legendary underground comic artist Gary Dumm that lasted for two years, until life intervened and BB was put on the back burner.

In January 2020, BB BluesBird made his reappearance in print when Hill began drawing him into every one of his editorial cartoons. True to form, in 2021 BB continued vocalizing his opinions on the pandemic, climate change, social justice, and local, regional and world politics.

This book features every single editorial cartoon that Hill published in 2021, including some unpublished cartoons. And, as an added bonus, the book includes 26 never-before-published pages of Hill’s Dr. Seuss-inspired verse and art.
