From the 1880s to the Roaring 1920s, Sullivant took to the drawing board and dreamed up all manner of hilarious gag cartoons featuring animals of all stripes, perennial American "types" like hayseeds and hobos, and classic characters from myths and biblical tales. These comics haven' t seen the light of day since their initial appearance in pioneering humor magazines like Puck and Judge over a century ago. Includes essays by John Cuneo, Peter de Seve, Barry Blitt, Steve Brodner, Rick Marshall, Nancy Beiman, and R. C. Harvey, with a foreword by cartoonist Jim Woodring.
After a delay of 100 years we can finally celebrate the arrival of a compilation of work by the brilliant T. S. Sullivant. What a wealth of talent and imagination are on display in the pictures and essays of this book. --Illustration Art This completist volume offers a valuable resource for scholars and students of the comics form. --Publishers Weekly Sullivant' s mastery marries comic sensibility with bravura draftsmanship and technique. He' s the missing link between Albrecht Durer and George Herriman, and part of the evolution that leads to any comic artist working today. --Barry Blitt Sullivant took simple funny-animal gags and turned them into breathtaking demonstrations of craft, invention, and inscrutable taste. --Jim Woodring Sullivant' s animals are rendered with such life on the page that you' d almost think that the real-life ones in the zoos, circuses, jungles, and farms are the caricatures. --Ricardo Martinez Sullivant' s talent for capturing movement and emotion is so amazing that his drawings never fail to surprise and delight. --Andreas Deja The sheer audacity of exaggeration in Sullivant' s cartoons humbles and delights me. --John Cuneo Open this book to any page and Sullivant' s characters are willed to life. Back from the past leaping, howling, chasing, charming, and astounding readers all over again. --Steve Brodner
