Product Description:

First published in 1989, this album is a treasury of outstanding graphics and rare comic art. It is also a history of the art form itself as seen through the work of sixteen cartoonists of the last century including Winsor McCay, Hal Foster, Chester Gould, Charles Schultz, EC Segar, Alex Raymond and Harold Gray.

Review:

One line in this beautiful coffee-table book on early comic-strip artists, America's Great Comic-Strip Artists, stands out: "Although George Herriman is the most celebrated comic-strip artist of all time--and by common agreement the greatest--his best-known strip, Krazy Kat, has been praised by people who have never seen it." While many people may be familiar with the featured artists or with their work ( Little Nemo, Popeye, Dick Tracy, Peanuts), the wealth of artistry in America's comics pioneers is something not to be overlooked. To examine the illustrations that begin each chapter--details of each artist's work enlarged so that you can see the grain of the paper and the dot patterns of color--is to be in awe of these graphic art masters. Richard Marschall's loving history begs to be visited again and again.
