We're coming at you right over the plate around mid-Summer with a collection of baseball cartoons by the 20th century's greatest sports cartoonist (that's what his peers called him), Willard Mullin's Golden Age of Baseball: Drawings 1934-1972.
Mullin's cartoons were read by millions of sports fans and earned him a name-drop by Charles M. Schulz in a Peanuts strip, so popular were they. Whether you remember them fondly from their appearances in the papers, you're a new generation of sports fan discovering them for the first time, or you just like masterful, dynamic cartooning and illustration, this is a book you'll be proud to have on your shelf (or coffee table, to show off Jacob Covey's striking — no pun intended — cover design). Get your spring training with a 26-page excerpt (note that it's taken from an early proof so some text may change but the images are final) and pre-order button right here.
