Fun, Solvable Crosswords with a Cartoon Twist!
Renowned New York Times crossword creator and illustrator Patrick Merrell has taken ordinary crosswords to a whole new level. Already famous for his Times puzzles—which stretch, twist, and outright shatter the rules of “ordinary” crosswords—Merrell has taken his extraordinary skills in both drawing and puzzlemaking and combined them in Punchline Puzzles.
Each puzzle contains a cartoon at its center—a cartoon whose punchline is hidden within the grid. Solve the puzzle, get the joke: it’s as simple as that. Plus each grid is full of bonus theme-related entries and extra cartoons to discover and enjoy!
