Syndicated in over 500 newspapers, "Mutts" is one of the most popular comic strips in the world. This volume focuses on cartoonist Patrick McDonnell's work and includes not only a vast collection of McDonnell's "Mutts" strips but also sketches, artwork, sculpture and more. McDonnell's essay, which runs through the book and accompanies the illustrations, serves as autobiography, comic history, character explication and art history all rolled up into one. McDonnell discusses his days in art school, his cartooning influences and his earliest editorial work.
