God Bless Publishers Weekly…

…they made Arf Museum the lead off cover review for their Publishers Weekly Comics site. They had some interesting things to say so I’m reprinting their thoughts for the interst of Arf Lovers everywhere:

“Having curated actual museum shows, cartoonist/designer Yoe turns to the print medium to exhibit little known cartoon art. Appropriately, the book opens with cartoons about fine art museums by Charles Addams, Chester Gould, Cliff Sterrett and others. Some of these works, like Frank King’s, demonstrate links between cartooning and “high” art.

Others, including an essay by Rube Goldberg, voice a populist disdain for modern art and art critics. In the wake of the King Kong remake, Yoe presents works pairing apes and women, running a gamut from horror to simple titillation, such as photos of Bettie Page with guys in literal monkey suits.

A segment on tattooing includes an EC-style horror tale written, surprisingly, by Stan Lee.

In the book’s most extraordinary works, 19th-century cartoonist Charles Bennett transforms animals into humans through a succession of images that Yoe insightfully compares to CGI “morphing” effects.

(click for close-up)Other highlights are remarkable, previously unpublished color paintings by Richard Outcault of the Yellow Kid, American comics’ first iconic character. The book concludes with an examination of Picasso’s interest in the comics. Lavishly illustrated, this survey of the long history of pop art entertains with a succession of bold, unexpected images.(July)

    I immediately thought of the not really 4 women solution for the first puzzle, then switched to the linear solution. ,

I.T.C.H is looking forward to your thoughts. Please, no flame. Thanks!
