IDW Publishing and Yoe Books are very proud to be releasing the “lost” graphic novel, Milt Gross’ New York, this December. In a mind-blowing, laugh-filled, freewheeling tour of New York, Gross’ character, Pop, and his sidekick son, blast through the East Side, the West Side, Chinatown, and Harlem. The demented duo roar through Yankee Stadium, the New York Public Library and Coney Island! This is really the Big Apple like you have never seen before and it’s all kinds of amazing!
“Gross was a comedic genius,” said Craig Yoe. “Publishing our previous Gross book, The Complete Milt Comic Books and Life Story, and now this rare, important and hilarious lost graphic novel would make me proudly stand tall—if I wasn't rolling on the floor laughing from Gross' guffaw-inducing work!
The book offers all of this as well as an insightful introduction by none other than huge Milt Gross fan, the comic industry’s greatest innovator, and man about town... Jim Steranko! Yes, THAT Jim Steranko!”
Here is your chance to experience one of the first and most brilliant graphic novelists’ work and just in time for the holidays. Don’t believe us? Here’s what some other luminaries have had to say about the man:
“I love all his work—what a goofball!” —Robert Crumb
“Still Great!” —Jules Feiffer
“He frees you up!”—Patrick McDonnell
“Dig!” —Matt Groening
