Staff Picks (Jul13): Wallace And Gromit — The Complete Newspaper Strips HC
Jun 14, 2013
Publisher: Titan Comics
If you’re a fan of animation, or an animation major like I was, then you should probably know the films featuring a man and his best friend named Wallace and Gromit. While they’re mostly known for their films, they also appear on UK television and in UK newspapers which Titan Comics is now offering to American audiences for the first time.
Wallace and Gromit are a mixed-match pair. Wallace is a genius inventor who isn’t as clever when it comes to his personal life, often coming in contact with shady characters and sticky situations. Gromit is Wallace’s faithful, canine companion, constantly keeping watch over Wallace as he carelessly falls into trouble. Together, they make a good team of English chaps who entertain audiences by getting into and out of ridiculous mayhem.
Wallace and Gromit: The Complete Newspaper Strips is just that, a complete collection of the first 52 weeks of this popular newspaper strip that American fans should be excited to see. Also included in its 130 plus pages are images from Wallace and Gromit’s greatest moments over their twenty years in animated films and television. With its large, hardcover format and attractive price, this book is exactly what American fans have been looking for.
