Christmas loot list – Part 2

And now for the cartoon-related stuff I gifted to myself. (And now that I think of it, it was all discounted. What a cheapskate I am.)

• Three book collections of Batman and Superman newspaper comic strips from the 30s and 40s.

• DVDs of Superman II, III and IV, Rocky and Bullwinkle, and a collection of King Features comic strip-based animation. Barney Google, Beetle Baily, Blondie, Flash Gordon, Prince Valiant, The Phantom, Hagar the Horrible, Mandrake the Magician. “131 cartoons, 20 hours of hilarity” it says on the cover. (Prince Valiant funny? Who knew?)

• And from my favorite used book store, The Book Centre, in my hometown of Spencerport, NY: “To Afghanistan and Back” by Ted Rall, a Jim Borgman 25 anniversary editorial cartoon collection and book by French cartoonist David B. I don’t know his work at all but I’ve heard good things and, heck, it was a used book… The image below is from the original, not the English translation I bought. (At least I think it’s the same one. Can’t know for sure. I only took 6 years of French.)

(I got the English translation. This image is just what I could find on the web.)
