If you have been holding off on purchasing these three volumes, I'm happy to announce that I've completely refurbished them all, with more competent and appealing layouts and graphics than earlier versions. This is the last revision I'll make on the series. Unless important new information on Stanley's comics career appears in the future, or someone offers firm proof that I've mis-credited anyone (Stanley included), I won't change them again.
These are available on amazon.com and createspace.com... but if you're interested in purchasing them from me, at a lower price than either site offers them, please contact me at eubiecat at gmail dot com with your zip code and I'll calculate the cost for you. These books will be shipped to you directly from the printer.
At left are the new covers for the three volumes. I've substantially slimmed down their page counts by the use of smaller type and more workable layouts.
The 1940s book has 128 pp., the 1950s book 156 pp. and the 1960s book 104 pp. The interiors are full color, and still contain the superb cover scans done by Dell Comics expert Alan Hutchinson.
You can preview the innards of these new editions HERE, HERE and HERE. I think they're much improved, and I hope they meet with your liking.
Meanwhile, work continues on the forthcoming first volume of the Drawn & Quarterly-published Complete Little Lulu hardcover series. I'm excited about this series, and feel they will contribute enormously to getting adult readers to read John Stanley's greatest work.
More news on that project as it moves along.
That's all for now...
