The Ted Rall edited Attitude anthology of opinionated cartoonists is back with a second installment. Attitude 2: The New Subversive Social Commentary Cartoonists is apparently at the printers and will be relased in February 2004.

Rall interviews 21 of America’s most interesting social commentary (and a few hard-hitting political) cartoonists, most of whom work in the alternative weeklies. It’s a great sampler of the most important work going on in American cartooning.
