Fantagraphics is scheduled to publish a 208 page hardcover next month about Virgil VIP Partch, the prolific cartoonist.
VIP: THE MAD WORLD OF VIRGIL PARTCH, written and edited by Jonathan Barli, is the first time an account of the man's life -- along with many of his cartoons -- has been presented. There's a healthy 28 page preview here.
Like Walt Kelly and Hank Ketcham, Partch was another fellow who left Disney to try the world of gag cartoons and comic strip syndication. The book features not only his gag cartoons and animation art, but there are reproductions from originals. Take a look at the preview and you'd find it fascinating.
Hat tip to Bado!
