    I love this book. It's taken me two nights just to get to page 32--it's that detailed and dense--and I'm already learning new details about a period I find fascinating. This is the earliest days of comics--its origins. Mitchell starts in 1934, even touching on the pulps, magazines and radio, and tells how comics came to dominate popular culture. Here's the inside story of the "shops," the eccentric publishers, the trials and errors of the early days. The great editors, the young spunky creators, And then year by year, starting in 1940, what was happening throughout the comics world during its meteoric rise to being part of nearly every kid's world.

    Explores the history behind Mopsy, the 1940s-60s comic strip star, who also was in her own comic book series, and her creator Gladys Parker! This beautiful book will also provide a rarely seen collection of Mopsy stories and many of Parker’s earlier strips. Parker was unique in comics. As with Frida Kahlo, it was impossible to tell where her art left off and its creator began. Parker mixed fashion and comics, also creating hand-made clothes for film stars--and the lovely and strong-willed Mopsy was an exact double for Parker herself. Learn More
