The energy in Mr. Modell's line is what captivated me to buy this book from a second-hand dealer in Bristol, NH. Actually, the book was in a large shelf on the second floor of a barn.
What I like is that you can see the speed in which Modell is drawing. Sometimes the ink can't catch up! And sometimes you can see some of the light pencil construction lines in the wash drawings.
This is what great cartooning looks like: vital, energetic and fun. These are just a few of the drawings from the book.
