Description

The most comprehensive history of the strip (1941-1985) and the only biography of Arriola.

"Profusely illustrated with runs of the strip from various periods, the book traces Arriola's artistic evolution and celebrates the cartoonist as a supremely inventive stylist whose artwork always displays design qualities unusual for a comic strip.

His stunning Sunday fiestas of color and design are exemplified with eight pages of full-color reproductions. Harvey provides...anecdotes about Arriola's friends and his early career as a Disney animator, but still leaves plenty of room for the cartoons."
