Complete Dennis The Menace 1951-1952

This month, Fantagraphics begins a new series reprinting the complete run on Hank Ketcham's Dennis the Menace. They're also bringing Ketcham's autobiography back into print. Don't miss the beginning of this classic comic.

Dennis the Menace was one of the most brilliantly observed and empathetic comic strips about childhood, as Ketchum captured the mischievousness, rambunctiousness, and anarchy of a kid's world better than any other cartoonist. This first volume publishes every single panel strip from 1951 and 1952 in one volume.
This engaging memoir from Hank Ketcham has Dennis the Menace tell his own story, from when he was about "five-ana-half" and first picked up the "magic pencil." This book not only traces the humorous adventures of Hank Ketcham, it also offers a special insight into the life and times of the half-pint "Menace." Plus, official model sheets, private sketches, and a dozen of Ketcham's hand-picked, all-time favorite strips.
