Drawing power : a compendium of cartoon advertising, 1870s-1940s( Book )

4 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 127 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Fantagraphics' new imprint Marschall Books presents Drawing Power, a lively collection of mass market print advertising from the 1890s to the recent past, starring both cartoonists and cartoon characters. While critics debate whether comics is high art or low art, the fact is that the comic strip was born as a commercial medium and was nurtured by competition, commerce, and advertising. Drawing Power will be the first book-length examination (and celebration) of the nexus of art and cartoons. It will focus on the commercial roots of newspaper strips; the cross-promotions of artists, their characters, and retail products; and of the superb artwork that cartoonists invested in their lucrative freelance work in advertising. Drawing Power is cultural history, chronicling a time in popular culture when cartoonists were celebrities and their strips and characters competed with the movies for the attention of a mass audience."--Publisher description

E.C. Segar's Popeye by E. C Segar( Book )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 61 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Remember last volume<U+2019>s cliffhanger? The penultimate installment of this acclaimed reprinting of E.C. Segar's masterpiece begins with "Popeye<U+2019>s Ark: Part Two," the tale of Popeye's eventful reign over Spinachovia -- a bleak island populated only by men and lacking all "femininity" -- even as Olive Oyl controls the country of Olivia (not to mention the men of Spinachovia). Then in "War Clouds," the two monarchies come tumbling down in a furious battle as Spinachovia is attacked by the tyrannical land-hungry King of Brutia, King Zlobbo! This volume<U+2019>s star is Eugene the Jeep, the rare, friendly, leopard-spotted, and magically-endowed little creature. And Segar makes a great addition to the cast in "The Search for Popeye<U+2019>s Poppa," when the ever-cantankerous Poopdeck Pappy is tracked and finally, hilariously found; the title of the follow-up story, "Civilizing Poppa," speaks for itself, as it tells the classic tale of man taming beast as Popeye guides a stubborn Pappy through table manners"--Amazon.com, viewed June 29, 2011
