- Full Description
An unparalleled book, the very first of its kind. Taken from uber-rare, never-before reprinted cartooning courses with expert teachings from cartooning’s rock stars: Peanut’s Charles Schulz, Little Nemo’s Winsor McCay, Superman’s Joe Shuster, Flash Gordon’s Alex Raymond, Terry and the Pirates’ Milton Caniff, Betty and Veronica’s Dan DeCarlo, Prince Valiant’s Hal Foster, Barney Googles’ Billy Debeck, Plastic Man’s Jack Cole, Gasoline Alley’s Frank King, Popeye’s E.C. Segar et al.
And many more icons of comic art, including The New Yorker’s Whitney Darrow, Jr. In the early part of the last century, cartoonists were the equivalent of movie stars, celebrated and highly paid. Many offered to pass on their wisdom to a new generation of young would-be artists by way of articles, books, magazine features, and correspondence courses in how to be a successful cartoonist and/or illustrator.
These Who’s Who’s of Cartooning’s greats teach you in page after page of eye-opening beginning and advanced lessons how to draw and write comics. And these esteemed geniuses act as life coaches with inspiring stories of how they succeeded, giving you stirring and wise encouragement to propel you to your own success. Or for non artists like myself, it's a glimpse behind the scenes at cartooning in the heyday of the art.
For beginners, seasoned professionals, teachers, students or anyone passionate about comics history, this is an invaluable classic in the field. Edited by Eisner-winner Craig Yoe, who has been accumulating these rarities his entire life, as a cartoonist himself.
