THROWBACK THURSDAY: REVIEWING A BOOK FROM MY SHELF
In the mid-1970’s if I ever thought of cartoons, one name came to mind…Gahan Wilson. His wit was wicked and his drawings deliciously simple but a tad off-beat.
Reading through a Gahan Wilson book is for adults who enjoy speculative fiction, what reading through The Far Side comics is for others: fun, unexpected, and the sense that you are ‘in’ on something slightly ‘naughty’ and that only you and Mr. Wilson understand. Sometimes this felt a little dated, though I’m not entirely sure why
This brought back fond memories as I read through it, undoubtedly for the first time since I bought it in 1975.
Looking for a good book? If you can find a copy of Gahan Wilson’s Cracked Cosmos, you are in for a treat.
