Tall Tales

by ,

Tall Tales was an innovative newspaper strip syndicated internationally by the "New York Herald Tribune "from 1957-1963. Whereas newspaper strips are square, single-panel or multiple-panel horizontal gag cartoons, Al Jaffee, known for the Fold-In in "MAD "Magazine, once again altered the format of his work to create a vertical strip--the first, and last, in newspaper history. Tall Tales contains the best 120 wordless strips out of over 2,200, scanned from the original files. The book features a new preface by Jaffee and an introduction by Stephen Colbert of "The Colbert Report." ""Al Jaffee is the cartoonist's cartoonist. He's a pioneer in every field, from comic books to book illustration to magazine cartoons. The worst thing about Jaffee is that every time I do a drawing, I find out he's done it before . . . and better."""--Sergio Aragones, cartoonist""""" ""This collection proves that not only has Al Jaffee always been funny, he's always been disturbed." ""-- Stephen Colbert, from his introduction" Hide synopsis
