Summary

A century of cartoon delights under one cover! Another greatArfbook for 2008, and it features one of the greatest comickers of all: Milt Gross! The Gross-ness starts off with a stunning cover painting done in the 1930s but, as they say, ripped from today's headlines. It's all about immigration: Uncle Sam grinds up a sea of immigrants and out come... classic comic strip characters! Milt Gross drew a 1920s comic that left the last panel blank for aspiring cartoonists. Editor Craig Yoe drafted a who's who of contemporary cartoonists to complete Gross's unfinished masterpieces. Art Spiegelman, Seymour Chwast, Patrick McDonnell, Mort Walker, R. Crumb, Bil Keane, Johnny Ryan, Jaime Hernandez, Mike Mignola, Bill Griffith, Kaz, Gene Deitch, Joost Swarte and a dozen more cartooning celebrities contribute art especially done for this Arf Happening! TheArfbooks are famed for unearthing unknown Old Skool cartoonist geniuses.Comic Arfshowcases the brilliant Dudley Fisher who amazingly drew crowded scenes all from a bird's eye view. And Arch Dale is another unsung genius getting his due with his Smurfs-meet-Dr. Seuss characters, the Doo-Dads, who populated Canadian comic strips 75 years ago. Arfalso highlights unusual work from recognized masters. Walt Kelly, famed for hisPogostrip, did a surreal nightmarish strip for children presented in all its glory in this latestArftome. Amongst all this fun,Comic Arfis also proud to present a hard-hitting chapter this volume entitled "The 15 Most Powerful Anti-War Cartoons of History," drawing from every major conflict of the last 200 years. All this and much more, from 1950s devilish horror comics to cartoonist portraits by Gary Panter and Mitch O'Connell.
