"Masterful Marks is a first-of-its-kind collection of graphic biographies of the visionary artists who pioneered the modern era of comics, drawn by today's foremost illustrators and edited by the award-winning creator of the cult-favorite BLAB art books, Monte Beauchamp. In Masterful Marks: Cartoonists Who Changed the World, sixteen award-winning illustrators shed light on the lives of the pioneer artists who most influenced them--and who created the world of modern comic art. Covering comic strips, manga, graphic novels, gag cartoons, children's books, and animation--and featuring such giants as Charles Schulz and the creators of Superman, Walt Disney, Hergé, Charles Addams, Robert Crumb, and Dr. Seuss--Masterful Marks is a tribute to the visionary creators whose work left an indelible mark upon the world. Had it not been for these monumental characters, the billion-dollar cartoon and comics industries would not exist as we know them today. Masterful Marks tells the stories of: * Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster (creators of Superman) by Ryan Heshka and Monte Beauchamp * Edward Gorey (celebrated author of children's books) by Greg Clarke * Winsor McCay (animation pioneer) by Nicolas Debon * Charles Schulz (creator of Peanuts) by Sergio Ruzzier * Chas Addams (creator of The Addams Family) by Marc Rosenthal * Jack Kirby (co-creator of Captain America) by Mark Alan Stamaty * Harvey Kurtzman (creator of MAD magazine) by Peter Kuper Masterful Marks is at once a visually stunning portrait of the cartoon world's aesthetic heritage, and a powerful story of how creative vision can change the world"--
