NutsGraphic Novel - 2011
In this thematically and narratively linked series of one-page storiesoriginally published in the National Lampoon 's "Funny Pages" sectionthroughout the 1970s, Gahan Wilson eschewed his usual ghouls, vampires, andend-of-the-world scenarios for a wry, pointed look at growing up normal in thereal, yet endlessly weird, world. Watch as our stoic, hunting-cap-wearingprotagonist (known only as "The kid") copes with illness, strange old relatives,the disappointment of Christmas, life-threatening escapades, death, school, theawfulness of camp, and much more -- all delineated in Wilson's roly-poly,sensual, delicately hatched line. Nuts was (partly) collected in a nowlong out-of-print volume back in 1979. If you don't remember what it was likebeing a child, this book will bring it all back... for good or forill!
