- Full Description
Sterrett's most brilliant Sunday pages, from the height of his Surrealistic Period, in a large 12 x 16 format. Right up there with Gasoline Alley's surreal work and Krazy Kat, these are the finest and wildest strips of their time! Polly has always been a secret masterpiece, little known by the general public but beloved by those in the know. Herriman's Krazy Kat also had fun surreal touches, but these Sunday Polly pages take it to the max. They are WILD!
Also: topper strips "Dot and Dash" and "Sweethearts and Wives." The majority of these have never before been reprinted.
Polly Perkins is young, blonde, and the apple of many a young man's eye. Yet while Polly is out on the town or frolicking at the beach, it's her family that creates all the hubbub!
Sensible Maw Perkins can never keep her husband Paw out of trouble, and towed along in Paw's wake are Polly's cousin Ashur; Neewah, the family's tart-tongued retainer; and Paw's cat, Kitty, the pantomime wonder of the comic strip world.
Edited by Dean Mullaney, designed by two-time Emmy winner Lorraine Turner, and with a new illustrated introduction by expert Jeet Heert, this book offers the high quality and detailed background and biographic material that has made Library of American Comics the "gold standard" in strip reprints.
Note: Bumped corners and scuffed covers. This is all minor, but nonetheless we can't sell these as "new" unblemished books. A real bargain.
