Genius x 3 and Barney too
The book "Genius, Isolated: The Life and Art of Alex Toth" has expanded into a slipcased three book set! Read more HERE!
Got the new Barney Google book produced by Yoe Books!
And it's everything I expected it to be, and more. Besides all of the dailies from 5-18 to 12-26 1922 there's also loads of rare artwork shot straight from the original art, and plenty of photos of Billy DeBeck.
If you like funny stuff, and now I'm talking really laughing-out-loud-funny stuff, you should get this volume. Don't be scared about he fact that the strips are nearly 90 years old. The reason Barney Google was such a big success was that DeBeck, like Roy Crane and other greats, wrote in a more "modern" way than most of their contemporaries. It's still funny and gives us a glipse of 1920's life in the US.
Now, go get it!
Time's a wastin'!
