For a few too-short years between 1972 and 1974, lucky newspaper readers were treated to something special in their Sunday funnies section: a weekly color strip by one of America’s greatest cartoonists — Gahan Wilson.

Each installment of Gahan Wilson Sunday Comics presents a cluster of single-panel gags. Some Sundays are a freewheeling mélange of board meetings, monsters, and cavemen, while others riff on a topic or subject (cats, luggage, magicians, wallpaper). The last gag most weeks is part of a recurring series, either the sometimes eerily prophetic “Future Funnies” or the lovably sinister “The Creep.” With a continuous procession of adorably grotesque freaks, geeks, and weirdos in improbably surreal scenarios, delineated in his signature saggy-baggy style, Wilson brought the same off-kilter perspective of his famous Playboy, New Yorker, and National Lampoon cartoons to a more family-friendly venue, without losing his subversive, satirical edge.

Fantagraphics is proud to rescue yet another great 20th-century funny-pages rarity from yellowing newsprint and present its entire run in this single volume, lovingly restored and with a brief historical commentary.
