took the syndication world by storm. The notoriety landed Boondocks
creator Aaron McGruder in publications ranging from Time
magazine to People
magazine which named him one of the ""25 Most Intriguing People of '99. Centered around the experiences of two young African-American boys, Huey and Riley, who move from inner-city Chicago to the suburbs (or the ""boondocks"" to them), the strip fuses hip-hop sensibilities with Japanese anime-style drawings and a candid discussion of race. Funny yet revealing, the combination of superb art and envelope-pushing content provides one of the most unique strips ever.
