Product Details

Praise

“Chester Gould introduced a new hard-hitting type of realism [that] marked a radical and historic departure: the comics were no longer just funny.” — Jerry Robinson, The Comics

“Chester Gould’s paragon of avenging normalcy was not your average, tough-guy detective. A unique combination of brawn and brains, he prefigured a whole new breed of scientific sleuths, whose recourse to technical innovations in criminology gave them the edge on grifters and hoods.” — Robert Storr, Dean, Yale University School of Art (from Masters of American Comics)

“This black and white morality play of Good vs. Evil was famously haunted by its gallery of grotesque and aptly named villains like Mumbles, the Brow and Flattop. Each of their faces was literally a “map,” a map of hell, indicated by the most peculiar configuration of lines the artist could manage. What great cartooning…it’s time to build new bookshelves to welcome one of America’s singular artistic achievements.” — Art Spiegelman
