 Wacky Packages New New New Book Review

About the Book: Wacky Packages: New New New is a follow-up title to the hilarious and colorful Wacky Packages, first published by Abrams in 2008. This new collection presents all the Wacky Packs from Series 8–14 covering the years 1974 and 1975. Featuring humorous and often grotesque parodies of common household brands like “Windaxe” cleaner and “Smoochers” jam, Wacky Packages: New New New offers a tongue-in-cheek critique of consumer culture and marketing subversion.
Created by a host of comics artists including Kim Deitch, Bill Griffith, Jay Lynch, and Norm Saunders, alongside Pulitzer Prize-winning cartoonist Art Spiegelman, Wacky Packages; New New New is a colorful, edgy, and intensely creative collection of illustrations. Packaged with four never-before-seen stickers and a wax jacket, Wacky Packages: New New New will please fans and collectors alike.

Our Take: This book is a follow-up to the original Wacky Packages art book that was released in 2008.  It features artwork from stickers between 1974-75.  The great little hardcover book is easy to carry around and has a cool wax card package like dust jacket.

The Wacky Packages New New New book features stickers from the iconic series, such as CENTS: Copper Flavored (instead of Certs mints), Pepto-Dismal and TV Garbage Magazine (in lieu of TV Guide).  This series was very much in the veign of snarky magazines like Mad and Cracked and later inspired the famous Garbage Pail Kids series of the 1980s.

The book is full of funny, gross and off-color art pieces mocking all types of products.  Its a ton of fun for adults and kids alike!
