The Someday Funnies is the long-awaited collection of comic strips created in the early 1970s by world-famous artists and writers such as C. C. Beck, René Goscinny, Harvey Kurtzman, Jack Kirby, Moebius, Art Spiegelman, and Gahan Wilson. What started out as a special insert for Rolling Stone took on a life—and mythology—of its own as writer/editor Michel Choquette traveled the world, commissioning this visual chronicle of the 1960s, only to find himself without a publishing partner or the financial support to continue. Forty years later, readers finally get to experience this legendary anthology as Choquette celebrates the birth, death, and resurrection of The Someday Funnies—129 previously unpublished strips by 169 writers and artists.Praise for The Someday Funnies:“In 1970, National Lampoon contributor Choquette was asked by Jann Wenner to edit a special comics insert for Rolling Stone that would allow prominent cartoonists and writers to survey the 1960s. That collection, “The Someday Funnies,” transformed over the next few years into a never-published book featuring the work of 169 writers and artists, and then—when Wenner pulled the plug—into the great lost project of comics history, a “Pet Sounds” of mainstream, underground, and European sensibilities existing only in Choquette’s Montreal storage space. Thirty-one years later, it’s finally seeing print and it’s a doozy, featuring work from luminaries like Art Spiegelman, Joost Swarte, Jack Kirby, and Will Eisner. There are also comics written by Harlan Ellison and William S. Burroughs, and illustrations from such unlikely suspects as Tom Wolfe and Federico Fellini. What sticks with a reader now is the way the ’60s had already begun to curdle in the memory even for those who had just lived them; more than one of these comics posits wild-eyed alternate histories of the ’60s, including the book’s kicker, a great Captain Marvel strip that ties the decade’s woes to Billy Batson’s mid-century silence. Though the collection is, by its nature, a mixed bag, it’s a priceless time capsule of comics history, presented handsomely by Abrams in the large tabloid size Choquette always envisioned.—Publishers Weekly, starred review “[A] treasure trove of sixties cartooning finally hits print. . . . This graphic time capsule reveals that “the sixties” still define modern America’s contradictory heart.” —Village Voice “Where else can you see previously unpublished works by great artists like Kirby, Bode, and Beck, who have since passed on to that great bull pen in the sky?” —Cleveland Plain Dealer “As a portrait of the state of the medium of comics in the early 1970s in the U.S. and Europe, a yeasty blend of old and new that was poised to make a jump to the forefront of artistic endeavors in the twenty-first century, The Someday Funnies is a five-star publication all the way.” —Tom Flinn, ICV2.com “Choquette was . . . reaching out beyond the insular underground comics circles, and filling in a bigger picture of where the world’s collective head was at as the temper of the times changed. . . . Because Choquette recruited globally, The Someday Funnies avoids the usual American baby-boomer mythology, in which the sixties were born in Greenwich Village, nurtured at Berkeley, and killed at Altamont. Instead, the book reports just as much on the youth revolution in Europe, from the perspective of people who’d just lived through it.” —Onion’s Michel Choquette, Books, Science Fiction and Fantasy, Graphic Novels, The Someday Funnies Books>Science Fiction and Fantasy>Graphic Novels, Abrams ComicArts

[EAN: 9780810996182], Neubuch, [PU: Abrams, United States], Language: English . Brand New Book. Try to imagine the greatest comic anthology ever. It would probably include artists like Wally Wood, Bill Griffith, Don Martin, and Denny O Neil. And if you truly let yourself dream, it might include comics luminaries like Harvey Kurtzman, Jack Kirby, Art Spiegelman, Sergio Aragones, Moebius, and Will Eisner. But never could you imagine an anthology so grand and magnificent that it would attract the likes of William Burroughs, Frederico Fellini, Tom Wolfe, and Frank Zappa, who were legends outside of the comics world. Well, one individual actually put this grand collection together - almost. The Someday Funnies began as a small project by Michel Choquette, a young and ambitious National Lampoon editor, in the 1970s and was first conceived of as a special comics insert chronicling the 1960s for Rolling Stone magazine. However, the project took on a life of its own and seven years later Choquette found himself $300,000 in debt and with no publishing partner. With dismal prospects for publication, Choquette placed the project in storage and went home to Montreal. It wasn t until over forty years later when a story about this legendary collection was published in the August 2009 edition of the Comics Journal that the public ever got a glimpse of this remarkable body of work. What was published in the article was just the beginning of the collection. Abrams ComicArts is proud to release this infamous body of work in a format that is sure to astonish.
