Masterful Marks: Cartoonists Who Changed the World
by Monte Beauchamp


CONDITION of Book is LIKE NEW! Some very minor softness overall to covers from being read, handled and stored. Minor wear to cover edges & slight stress at spine.

In a first-of-its-kind collection, award-winning illustrators celebrate the lives of the visionary artists who created the world of comic art and altered pop culture forever.

No one has told the story of comic art in its own medium, until now. In Masterful Marks, top illustratorsincluding Drew Friedman, Nora Krug, Denis Kitchen, and Peter Kuper reveal how sixteen visionary cartoonists overcame massive financial, political, and personal challenges to create a new form of art that now defines our world.

Sixteen Graphic Novel Biographies of:

* Walt Disney * Dr. Seuss * Charles Schulz * The Creators of Superman * R. Crumb * Jack Kirby * Winsor McCay * Hergé * Osamu Tezuka * MAD creator, Harvey Kurtzman * Al Hirschfeld * Edward Gorey * Chas Addams * Rodolphe Topffer * Lynd Ward * Hugh Hefner

Superhero comics didnt exist until two teenagers from Cleveland created the first superhero of all time: Superman. Advertising artist Theodor Geisel released his first book in 1937 as Dr. Seuss and childrens literature was never the same. Charles M. Schulzs perseverance and passion gave the world Peanuts, the worlds most famous comic strip. Featuring these tales, and profiling such giants as Walt Disney, Robert Crumb, and the creators of MAD, Tintin, and manga, Masterful Marks illustrates how graphic storytelling became such a rich and popular medium.

Masterful Marks is a stunning portrait of the comic arts aesthetic heritage and a powerful story of how creative vision can change the world.
