Boody: The Bizarre Comics of Boody Rogers

"Unappreciated Genius: Craig Yoe on Boody Rogers" --USA Today

You've met Fletcher Hanks, now meet Boody Rogers! Fans of Boody Rogers' Golden Age comic book stories span generations of cartoonists, from Robert Williams to Art Spiegelman to Johnny Ryan. Rogers' work appeared in Spiegelman's RAW magazine and in the anthology book Art Out of Time: Unknown Comic Visionaries (Abrams).



Here at last is a single book, Boody: The Bizarre Comics of Boody Rogers, devoted to this cult comics hero and collecting Rogers' best Sparky Watts, Babe, Dudley, and many more stories. This beautifully designed tome showcases vintage photos and unpublished art (including an original from the first modern newsstand comic book that Rogers drew in 1935). It all begins with a career-spanning, fun and fascinating interview with the late Rogers by editor Craig Yoe.
