Comic Strip Masterpieces #1

This full-color tabloid is a spectacular showcase of some of the finest comics art of the last century, and a collector's item in the making! Designed like an old-time classic newspaper comic strip supplement, Comic Strip Masterpieces will feature superb reproductions of some of the very finest Gasoline Alley, Dick Tracy, Krazy Kat, Little Nemo In Slumberland, Steve Canyon, Terry And The Pirates, Dennis The Menace, Flash Gordon, Yellow Kid and Popeye strips, including many stunning full-color Sunday pages! There will also be a "sequel" of sorts to the hugely popular Unseen Peanuts (an annotated spread of Peanuts strips from the upcoming ninth volume of Peanuts that have never been reprinted since their original newspaper release almost 40 years ago), as well as biographical notes on the cartoonists, a checklist of classic comic strip reprints, and more. Designed as a promotional item for the industry-wide Classic Comic Strips Month promotion, reading Comic Strip Masterpieces will be like traveling back in time to an era when comic strips were actually good... a perfect summary of this great American artform!
