Various (w & a & c)
This is a lovingly put together collection that really showcases the range of macabre unleashed on the masses at the time and that EC in no way held the corner on the market. Featuring ghouls, ghosts, monsters, murder, mysticism, and revenge, there’s a new horror lurking behind the turn of each page.
What truly stands out… is the artwork. With the turn of each page, you’ll find fantastic artwork that embodies the style at the time, with each panel densely packed with details and horrors to fill night after night’s sleep with nightmares.

Stan Kelly (a & c)
The Los Angeles Times proclaims The Onion’s editorial cartoonist, Stan Kelly, “A maniac whose ideas frequently make no sense at all!” But what do you expect from the Lame-stream Media? What truly makes no sense at all is that there has never been a published collection of Kelly’s work—until now! Easily our era’s top opinion-maker, Kelly influences everyone from world leaders to water cooler layabouts. Sticking it to the sickos and giving props to the patriotic, Kelly’s super-award-winning cartoons “tell it like it is” and frame today’s crucial issues in context so you don’t have to. This lavish, soft-cover 50th Anniversary Collection, compiled by acolyte Ward Sutton and loaded with bonus extras, presents the best of Kelly in his signature, eye-popping black and white. It’s a trip every Kellyhead has been dying to take!
George Herriman (w & a & c)
Much attention has been paid to Herrriman’s Sunday full-page comics, yet it is in the daily Krazy Kat strips that the cartoonist most frankly illustrates many of his major themes, especially the shifting nature of social identity.
The 1934 strips reprinted in this book fit anyone’s definition of “essential.” They show Krazy Kat at top speed, ever-changing, endlessly inventive, with language that sparkles with double meanings and more in lines such as “his malady drills me to my sole.”
The year includes homages to old jokes and bricks, followed by playful references to sex, drink, and even drugs. The daily Krazy Kat strips are often Herriman’s most personal works and standouts in this year include Krazy Kat’s attempt to write a memoir and the Kat’s quietly waiting for the last leaf of “ottim” to fall (a tender scene that finds echoes in Charles Schulz’s drawing Linus admiring the last autumn’s leaf stubborn spirit). It could also be argued that the daily is more accessible to the new reader. Herriman biographer Michael Tisserand provides an insightful introduction.
