NBM Publishing announced that they will collect the early years of the Mutt & Jeff comic strip by Bud Fisher in its THE EARLY YEARS OF MUTT AND JEFF (FOREVER NUTS: CLASSIC SCREWBALL STRIPS), edited by Jeffrey Lindenblatt. It's scheduled release: July, 2007.
This will be the first of a proposed series of classic newspaper strip hardcover reprint books from NBM. Here's the announcement:
FOREVER NUTS is a new series of reprints concentrating on very early, very goofy strips — early classics that have aged surprisingly well, with off-the-wall humor that remains fresh to this day. Each volume will present a different strip from the early 20th century.
Hat tip to THE BEAT.
