Overview
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.

Sixteen Graphic Novel Biographies of:

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

The story of cartoons--the multibillion-dollar industry that has affected all corners of our culture, from high to low--is ultimately the story of the visionary icons who pioneered the form.

But no one has told the story of comic art in its own medium--until now.

In Masterful Marks, top illustrators--including 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.
