He Done Her Wrong: The Great American Novel (With No Words) By Milt Gross
First off let me apologize to those who like to read my blog and say I have been busy with school work as well as many project that I am going to undertake. Another gem was found at my local library about the really awesome Milt Gross. For those of you who are unfamiliar with Mr. Gross's work I suggest that you check out JohnK's Blog http://johnkstuff.blogspot.com/ as well as www.animationarchive.org for more info. Here is a quick run down of what I know of the man himself. He was a Jewish New Yorker that grew up in the Bronx in 1895 and worked for the New York Journal creating a wonderful zany narrative comic strips throughout his amazing career. Here are some of the strips he made: Phool Phan Phables, Gross Exaggerations, Dave's Delicatessen, Count Screwloose of Tooloose, Babbling Brooks, Otto And Blotto, That's My Pop!, the Banana Oil! strip along with countless others. I hope you enjoy a sample of the cool things that are in this novel with no words. Sorry for the crude scans I need to figure out how to fix that in the future.
