Steve Sack is a wonderful cartoonist. He draws … in a painterly, colorful style that cannot be compared to any other cartoonist. I consider Steve a “stealth” cartoonist because his drawing style is cute, young and charming. but the sweet look is deceptive, Steve is actually one of the toughest cartoonists who impales his political goals with little mercy.
