The long-overdue, definitive career retrospective of an early 20th century master of cartooning.

Golfing giraffes, high-society hippos, cigar-chomping chimps — welcome to the whimsical world of T.S. Sullivant, a cartoonist whose drawings contain such infectious joy and preposterous exaggeration that they have inspired generations of artists and countless Disney films! From the 1880s to the Roaring Twenties, Sullivant took to the drawing board and dreamed up all manner of hilarious gag cartoons featuring animals of all stripes, perennial American "types" like hayseeds and hobos, and classic characters from myths and biblical tales.

Fantagraphics is proud to present Sullivant's delightfully off-kilter creations, which have not seen the light of day since their initial appearance in pioneering humor magazines like Puck and Judge over a century ago. Rounded out with essays by illustration luminaries John Cuneo, Peter de Sève, Barry Blitt, and Steve Brodner; comics scholar Rick Marshall; and former Disney animator Nancy Beiman; a foreword by cartoonist Jim Woodring; and a biographical sketch by comics scholar R.C. Harvey, A Cockeyed Menagerie is the definitive T.S. Sullivant collection.

"Open this book to any page and Sullivant's characters are willed to life. Back from the past leaping, howling, chasing, charming, and astounding readers all over again." — Steve Brodner
