From the publisher:

The comic strip is one of American's few indigenous art forms. This book celebrates the medium's first century from 1896 to the present highlighting pioneers in the art and adventures strips that kept the public enthralled with daily and weekly cliffhangers. Comic strips include: Yellow Kid, Krazy Kat, Little Nemo in Slumberland, Li'l Abner, Nancy, Calvin and Hobbes, Dilbert, Cathy, Dick Tracy, Flash Gordon, Prince Valiant, Terry and the Pirates, Superman, Pogo, Doonesbury and more.

This came from the collection of Steve Sherman, a writer,artist, puppet-maker, puppet-performer, and avid collector. Steve worked as Jack Kirby's assistant, at Filmation, and Sid and Marty Krofft, before forming his own company Puppet Studio in 1984 contributing to "Pee-Wee's Playhouse", "Men in Black 1 & 2", "Mighty Joe Young", "Muppets" and numerous other TV series and feature films.
