Complete Milt Gross Comic Book Stories is On Sale NOW! Yippee!!!

Complete Milt Gross Comic Book Stories
The Complete Milt Gross Comic Book Stories is finally IN STOCK at Amazon! Just got mine via FedEx's BEAUTIFUL! (insert sound of weeping for joy!) Complete Milt Gross Comic Book Stories is a beautifully designed book collects the complete comic book stories of comic genius Milt Gross, culled from rare, impossible to track down comic books of the '40s, which have been lovingly restored.  This thick, full-color, 368-page hardcover book, in addition to exhuming every one of Milt Gross' wild and crazy comic book stories, shares rare photos, sketches, and unpublished art, including the previously unknown cover to the Milt Gross Funnies #3!
All the comics are lovingly photographed from the old yellowed comic book paper of the original comics. The coloring looks totally natural against the off-white, pulpy-textured paper. The paper itself is very hefty and thick, so there is no bleed-thru or transparency of images. This is a solidly-built book, with a strong sewn binding. I will post a review of the biography and all the extras as soon as I get a chance to properly wallow around with this beautiful classic comics collection!

A couple years ago I posted a fantastic seven-page Count Screwloose comedy epic from ACG's Kilroys #5. Just CLICK below on the goofy dude smoking a mouthful of cigars to jump over and see that delicious set of vintage comic book scans!
