$3.95 for 60+ pages of in-depth examination of comic strips and the art and business that produces them, reprints of complete sequences of classic work...and all for less than the price of a burger joint value meal.
Hmmmph. This was truly a treasure trove, undervalued in AND since it's time.
Enough yammering...let's get into the good stuff!
Edwina was an anomaly in her day and still something of one after her time. A female cartoonist. There are a few today, like Lynn Johnstone who's "For Better of For Worse" is a modern classic and the dreadful Cathy Guisewhite (SP?...I don't give a shit if I got it wrong...it's reaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaally not worth looking up) who's "Cathy" strip was mercifully retired this year. "Cathy" is a stip whose grave I'll happily dance on for years to come. If only she'd had the decency to drag that shit-bag Jim Davis and "Garfield" into oblivion with her...but I digress.
Edwina was a successful and prolific comic artist who is sorely under-rated...but then, that's Nemo's specialty, isn't it?
This issue gives us an extravagantly in-depth interview with the woman herself at the ripe age of 93 and continues on to celebrate her legacy with an entire sequence from 1937 of her strip, Captain Stubbs and Tippie.
Read on, Kiddoes...you'll be glad you did.
