Art Out of Time : Unknown Comics Visionaries, 1900-1969
by Dan Nadel




Overview -
Before there was Robert Crumb, there was Herbert Crowley. If you don't recognize that name, you're not alone. Crowley is one of nearly 30 American cartoonists featured in this eclectic anthology, artists whose work--created between 1900 and 1969--was overshadowed by more successful contemporaries. Art Out of Time at last gives these pioneers the showcase they deserve, reprinting--in most cases for the first time since their initial publication--complete comic books and strips by such visionaries as Raymond Ewer, Howard Nostrand, Ogden Whitney, and Dick Briefer. These under-recognized artists often deviated from the thematic and graphic conventions of the comics medium--and influenced Crumb, Art Spiegelman, and others--making this superb anthology a true "counter history," the untold story of an underground that wasn't.
