In our third volume of all-ages adventures, Kelly begins to hit his stride by relying more on original ideas than following the MGM scripts. The mainstay offbeat personas are joined by other whimsical characters in these witty tales.
This graphic novel debut reads very much like a Loony Tunes cartoon — if all of the anthropomorphic animals were kvetching, balding, foul-mouthed misanthropes. A twisted combination of mundane realism and gross-out slapstick.

) covers 1932-1934 and includes the never-republished extra-large strips set at the Chicago World's Fair and an insightful scholarly essay.

The first critical retrospective of the work of the reclusive Spider-Man co-creator traces his life and career, his stylistic innovations, and his philosophical principles, in a lushly-illustrated coffee-table book.
