Another great Arf book for 2008, featuring one of the greatest cartoonists of all time: Milt Gross!!! The Gross-ness begins on the cover with a stunning painting by the Count of Cartoons depicting Uncle Sam as he grinds up a sea of immigrants into a parade of classic comic strip characters!
During the 1920s, Milt Gross drew a comic strip that left the last panel blank for aspiring cartoonists. Arf series Editor Craig Yoe has drafted a Who's Who of contemporary cartoonists to complete Gross's unfinished masterpieces. Art Spiegelman, Patrick McDonnell, Mort Walker, R. Crumb, Bil Keane, Johnny Ryan, Jaime Hernandez, Mike Mignola, Bill Griffith, Kaz, Gene Deitch, Joost Swarte and a dozen more cartooning celebrities contribute art especially done for this Arf Happening!
For the history buff, Comic Arf delivers with showcases of Dudley Fisher, Arch Dale and a hard-hitting chapter entitled "The 15 Most Powerful Anti-War Cartoons of History." But why stop there! Keep turning the pages and you will find features and comic strip presentations by the likes of Walt Kelly, Gary Panter and Mitch O'Connell! And that's not all!!!
