Our good friend over at Attempted Bloggery shows us what happens when you ask a bunch of cartoonists at a book event to draw frogs (sometimes you get a crocodile — sometimes you get a dog).
Coming from Fantagraphics in February 2014, Stranger than Life: Cartoons and Comics 1970 – 2013 (Women, What Do We Want) by M. K. Brown. Ms. Brown’s work first appeared in The New Yorker in 1998.
From the publisher’s note:
Stranger Than Life is the first retrospective collection of Brown’s cartoons and comic strips from the National Lampoon 1972-1981, as well as such other magazines as Mother Jones, The New Yorker, Atlantic Monthly, and Playboy; and her comics from underground publications like Arcade, Wimmin’s Comics, Young Lust, and Twisted Sisters.
