Mutts: The Comic Art of Patrick McDonnell Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

With its expressive art and humorous, often philosophical musings, Mutts has become one of the most popular comic strips in the world, with an estimated daily readership of 50 million. Peanuts creator Charles Schulz called Mutts "one of the best comic strips of all time." Simpsons creator Matt Groening concurs: "Mutts cheers me up every day. It's not only sweet, simple, and funny--a rare combination--it's also the best drawn comic strip around." This comprehensive volume, the first to focus on the entire range of Patrick McDonnell's art, includes not only a vast collection of his Mutts strips, but also sketches, paintings, and wood carvings by the man who has made Earl the dog and Mooch the cat such beloved contemporary icons. McDonnell's text--which serves as autobiography, comic history, character explication, and art history rolled into one--lets readers into his private universe to observe his process, influences, and passions. The result is an intimate and revealing look at the complexities of the cartooning craft and the forces that drive his own creative endeavors.
