Mayoral Ink: Cartooning Pittsburgh’s Mayors

Mayoral Ink contains over 170 cartoons featuring the exploits of Richard Caliguiri, Sophie Masloff, Tom Murphy, Bob O’Connor, Luke Ravenstahl and Bill Peduto. With the exception of some early cartoons in black and white, most of the book contains full-color cartoons. If you are not familiar with Pittsburgh politics that’s OK — as each cartoon has a line of explanatory text to help the reader with history and context.

The local comic strip is set in a fictitious diner on Grant Street in downtown Pittsburgh. Grant Street, of course, is home to the Mayor’s office, City Council Chambers, County Courthouse and the old County Jail. In other words, a lot of crazy stuff goes down on Grant Street. Brewed on Grant is by far the most popular cartoon that Rob Rogers illustrates each week, especially among Pittsburgh readers.

About the Author: Rob Rogers has been drawing cartoons about Pittsburgh and its mayors since the mid ’80s, but he has only been drawing his popular local weekly comic strip, Brewed on Grant, since the ’90s. This book is Rogers' first from the Brewed on Grant collection.

Softcover, 180 pages.
