BOOK PREVIEW

The Complete Milt Gross Comic Books and Life Story



IDW and Yoe! Books present The Complete Milt Gross Comic Books and Life Story, a tome of legendary proportions!

 

Milt Gross wrote and drew what many consider to be the first graphic novel, He Done Her Wrong, was a popular comic stripper with hilarious cartoon-style Yiddish-isms, animator, screenplay writer, and co-writer of films with Charlie Chaplin.


This beautifully designed book collects the complete Milt Gross' comic book stories. They have been culled from rare, impossible-to-track-down comic books of the '40s, which have been lovingly restored. In addition, this tome shares rare photos, sketches, and unpublished art, including the previously unknown cover to the unpublished Milt Gross Funnies #3!


The FOLD-INtroduction is by Al Jaffee of Mad magazine.
