Riassunto: Polly debuted in 1912 as one of the first “pretty girl” strips, but it was in 1925 that Cliff Sterrett’s magnificent Sunday pages entered their peak period, as he developed a style with distinctive surreal perspectives, abstract backgrounds, and bold, vibrant use of color. Art Spiegelman says, “Polly and Her Pals is a glorious composition...a happy pop synthesis of Art Deco, Futurism, Surrealism, Dada, and Pure Cartoon.”
This landmark book reproduces every one of Cliff Sterrett’s dynamic full-color Sunday pages from 1925 to 1927, many printed directly from original syndicate proofs. The pages also include Sterrett’s topper strips, Damon and Pythias and Dot and Dash. In our extensive research into the strip, we have unearthed a tremendous amount of new information that will alter the generally accepted view of Cliff Sterrett’s life. Among these discoveries is that Sterrett had taken a sabbatical from the strip for more than half a year in 1925. Our initial plan—to gather the complete Sterrett Sundays from 1925 through 1927—remains in effect: every Sunday drawn by him in 1925 is included. Because this sabbatical seems to have had a profound effect on Sterrett’s work, we have expanded our scope to include more of his earlier strips. In order to appreciate the strip’s evolution, we present over 25 additional Sundays, representative samples from each of the years 1913 through 1924, including the very first one.
MULTIPLE EISNER AWARD NOMINEE!!!
“Don’t Ask! Just Buy It!—Douglas Wolk, Comics Alliance
“The early years of newspaper comics produced a handful of widely acknowledged masterworks, such as Little Nemo and Krazy Kat; this impressive [Polly and Her Pals] collection makes a convincing case that Sterrett’s creation should be added to that honor roll.” — Gordon Flagg, Booklist
“Reading Polly and Her Pals gives one the same thrill that an archeologist must feel as he or she dusts off an antiquity: the thrill of discovery-the sense of origin-the knowledge that one is witnessing the birth of new artistic techniques rather than the tenth generation knockoffs of those techniques.” — Scott Katz, ustownhall
“This extraordinary volume, first in a series, is impressive in both content and sheer size. It’s the same shape as the traditional newspaper comic page from its original era, making it humongous by current standards. At 12″ x 16″, you’ll need a table or other flat surface to enjoy it, and it’s a wonderful feeling to be totally taken in by the color pages filling your entire field of vision and beyond.” — Johanna Draper Carlson, Comics Worth Reading
“A perfect coffee table book—not one that you would put on your coffee table...but one big enough to be used as a coffee table.” — J. Caleb Mozzocco, Newsarama
