It Only Comes in Orange, Mr Zuma - Zapiro's 2021 Annual is out NOW.

Lifestyle Reporter.

No little thorn in the flesh or irritating fly in the ointment, Zapiro just cannot be ignored.

It’s been another helluva year, and who better to make sense of it than Zapiro, cartoonist, political analyst and agent provocateur. He has the ability to knock the air out of us, to rock us back in our seats, only to force us bolt upright with a 1000-watt jolt of electrifying shock. He makes us angry; he makes us laugh and he makes us think.

In It Only Comes in Orange, Mr Zuma, Zapiro tackles the madness of the pandemic, and that the only South Africans ready for the second wave were the Covidpreneurs; then there’s Piet Rampedi’s ten little maybe babies, the mayhem of Donald Trump, the jailing of former president Showerhead – and his flat screen television revolution, amongst everything else that happened in this eerie year.

You’ll shake your head, you’ll roll your eyes, and more than anything, you’ll laugh behind your mask!
