Klassic Krazy Kool Kids Komics!

The studio post has just delivered my copies of The Golden Collection of Klassic Krazy Kool Kids Komics!, a big, fat anthology of old kids comics (mostly) from the 40's & 50's by greats like Suess, Wolverton, Feiffer, Frazetta, Ditko, Kirby, Wood, Barks, Hoff, and more.

I was delighted to write a short introduction to the volume.

The book is really huge (This review tells the story pretty well) & is filled with wonderfully weird stuff. A great companion to Speigleman & Mouly's better spelled The Toon Treasury of Classic Children's Comics, with a longer intro by pal Jon Scieszka.
