In a mind-blowing, laugh-filled, freewheeling tour of New York, Gross' character Pop and his sidekick son blast through the East Side, West Side, Chinatown, and Harlem. The demented duo roar through Yankee Stadium, the New York Public Library, and Coney Island!
A "lost" graphic novel from one of the FIRST and MOST BRILLIANT graphic novelists: Milt Gross! Listen to what Big Shot cartoonists say about Gross:
"I love all his work! What a goofball!"
"He frees you up!"
Animation Resources says of this 1939 uber-rare book: "It's an amazing time capsule into life in the Big Apple in its golden age. If Weegee's Naked City depicts the front page view of this marvelous time and place, Gross' Cartoon Tour tells the Funny Pages version." Animation Resources concludes: "Milt Gross is one of the greatest comic artists who ever lived. His drawing style is direct and funny with absolutely flawless staging, composition and expression... there's still plenty of joy in every panel!"
"A handsome new book!"
--Dennis Drabelle, The Washington Post
"Craig Yoe has dug up never-published artwork, artifacts, and letters that will bring Herriman to life for the uninitiated while giving fans something new to feast on."
--Chris Nichols, LA Magazine
"Yoe's affection for the subject and its creator is clear from the loving attention to detail found from cover to cover."
