For Your Reading Pleasure, Craig Yoe Recommends These Personal Favorites…


I wish I knew more about animation. I do know that the Looney Tunes cartoons are the funniest cartoons of all time. So I have been greatly enjoying reading Insight Editions’ The 100 Greatest Looney Tunes Cartoons (MAR101241), edited by Jerry Beck. I read the fascinating commentary on each cartoon and then watch the 'toon cited on dvd — what a treat!

People who know me, know that I'm a sucker for a well-drawn sexy girl. And nobody draws the female form better than Dean Yeagle. Yeagle is a master pin-up cartoonist and I buy each and every one of his books and delightedly pore over them. A great start is the recently updated Melange: The Art of Dean Yeagle HC (MAR111381).

When I worked on Archie: A Celebration of America's Favorite Teenager,it cemented in my mind what a brilliant artist and humorist Bob Montana was. So I really love IDW’s Archie: The Complete Daily Newspaper Strips—1946-1948, featuring Bob Montana, and edited by Greg Goldstein.
