Reading the Funnies: Essays on Comic Strips
Donald Phelps (au); Fielding Dawson (fr). This illustrated book collects Donald Phelps’ essays on early 20th century newspaper strips -- the Golden Age of comic strips, when readers avidly followed the daily & weekly adventures of Flash Gordon, Little Nemo, & Krazy Kat, a time when the critic Gilbert Seldes could write, “Of all the lively arts the Comic Strip is the most despised &, with the exception of the movies, it is the most popular.” These are celebratory literary examinations, with examples, of some of the greatest strips to have ever appeared in newspapers: James Swinnerton’s Little Jimmy, E.C. Segar’s Thimble Theatre, Chester Gould’s Dick Tracy, Frank King’s Gasoline Alley, Harold Gray’s Little Orphan Annie, Harry J. Tuthill’s The Bungle Family, & others.
