This is the complete collection of Poor Arnold's Almanac, Arnold Roth's hilarious newspaper strip that ran every Sunday from may 1959 to May 1961. Each strip's subject — baseball, dogs, commuting, ice cream, elephants, the telephone, smoking, you name it — is poked, prodded, ridiculed, analyzed, explored and dissected in Roth's good-natured, hilarious, trenchant, witty, and instantly recognizable style. Roth is one of America's most widely known cartoonists, whose work appears in Esquire, Sports Illustrated, Time, and many other mass circulation magazines, as well as having been featured in early MAD Magazine. "All cartoonists are geniuses," writes John Updike in his introduction to this volume, "but Arnold Roth especially so. He is an American original, irreverent, tireless, manicky, and secretly efficient. He can draw, is what it comes down to, and his work jumps with joy."
