About Barney Google: Gambling Horse Races & High-Toned Women
Before there was Google the search engine, there was Barney Google, with the goo-goo-googly eyes! This lovable comic strip character was brilliantly drawn in absorbing and hilarious stories by master draftsman Billy DeBeck. Barney gambled, hung with high-toned women and hillbillies, and played the horses! This novel-length, thrilling, and laugh-packed story was about Google’s racehorse Sparkplug and delighted a nation in the 1920s as they will you.
