Boody: The Bizarre Comics of Boody Rogers

Boody Rogers was responsible for creating strange but raucous comics that influenced many of today’s big-name underground cartoonists, from Art Spiegelman to Johnny Ryan. Characters like Sparky Watts, Babe and Dudley won’t mean much to modern audiences, but in the 1930s they were the cutting edge, with his strips featuring in theThe Funnies – the first modern comic to hit the newsstand.

This collection of reprints offers a rare insight into early comics – especially from such an influential creator – making this a must have for those interested in the genesis of comics as we know them today.
