About this title

Synopsis:

Undeniably one of the most popular participant sports worldwide, golf has been the subject of much humor. Golf in the Comic Strips is a collection of comic strips tracing the sport of golf, golfers and golf humor throughout newspapers and magazines of the 20th century. Over 200 full-color, rare and historic comic strips represent the diverse, timeless allure of golf.

From the Back Cover:

As one of the oldest and greatest sports of all time, golf has been the subject of a wealth of humorous depictions. No other sport has been more parodied, satirized, or used as a setting than golf. Golf in the Comic Strips uses the perceptive minds of the world's foremost cartoonists to capture the wild and woolly, the mysterious and rewarding allure of golf-what it does to its players and what it leaves them in return. Each strip is unique and will leave the golfer and the non-golfer with an extra appreciation for the game, as well as some howls of laughter at the folly of it all. From his collection of over 4,000 cartoons and comic strips on golf, Howard Ziehm shares over 200 beautiful, full-color, rare, and historic comic strips from more than 100 artists. Interwoven is insightful text explaining stylistic innovations, milestones, and artist- or period-related information giving you a sense of what golf and the world was like in each era. Including artists like Clare Briggs (A Piker's Clerk), Sidney Smith (The Gumps), Richard Outcault (The Yellow Kid), James Swinnerton (Jimmy), Charles Schulz (Peanuts), Johnny Hart (B.C.), and Mort Walker (Beetle Bailey), Golf in the Comic Strips is an essential for all golf lovers, cartoon fans, and humor buffs.
