Product Details

Praise

“Combining more than six hundred rare cartoons, comics and photographs with deeply researched and insightful text, comics historian Paul C. Tumey builds the case for the genre of Screwballism, convincingly illustrating why names like Frederick Burr Opper or Boody Rogers should be at least as familiar to Americans as Charlie Chaplin or Mel Brooks. Better yet, he curates examples of the cartoonists’ work–much of which is previously unpublished since first appearing in newspapers–that make the case for themselves.” –Michael Tisserand, author of KRAZY: George Herriman, a Life in Black and White.
