The fifth volume of Ketcham's phenomenal panel covers the end of the Postwar Era, 1959-1960. The tiny troublemaker encounters bobby-soxers, beatniks, cats and hobos, and of course plenty of mischief at home and in the neighborhood.

We are proud to present the fifth volume of Hank Ketcham's phenomenal panel covering the end of the Postwar Era, 1959-1960. Ketcham captured the mischievousness, rambunctiousness, and anarchy of a kid's world better than any other cartoonist. The strip appeals to both parents and children―while parents shake their head ruefully at how accurately Ketcham caught the essence of children's natural zest for mayhem, children identify with Dennis and the chaos that he leaves in his wake. Ketcham's gags are funny, subtle and touching, and executed with a vivacious, exquisite line.

Ketcham drew Dennis the Menace from 1951 to 1994, when he retired and let his assistant take over the strip. This fifth volume of Hank Ketcham's Complete Dennis the Menace publishes every single panel strip from 1959 and 1960 in one handsome brick of a hardcover. Ketcham's legendary pen and ink work is in full flower in this volume as are the various situations and themes that Ketcham would return to again and again, featuring Dennis and his regular group of supporting players: his long-suffering parents, the even longer-suffering neighbors Mr. and Mrs. Wilson, Dennis's dog Ruff and his best pal Joey, the annoying Margaret, the adorable Gina, and more.

Review:

“Ketcham’s graphic virtuosity: his bold line work, expert compositions, and vivid characterizations make each and every panel a visual delight.”
- Gordon Flagg, Booklist

“There’s something intrinsically elegant about a single comic strip frame, an inherent simplicity born of both necessity and design, especially if that frame comes not as one in a series but as the whole of the story itself...The good folks at Fantagraphics Books have just released volume 5...a nearly 7-pound brick of a book that will leave you blocks of pure pleasure...so big it could act as a worthy door stop for a vault if it didn’t look so damn good on my shelf―an in my hands.”
- John Hood, Miami SunPost
