“Lost” Graphic Novel From One of The Most Influential Men In Comics Uncovered
San Diego, CA (September 8, 2014) – To those to that know Milt Gross and his work, he is a legend among legends. For those that don’t, in 1930, Gross wrote and drew one of the very first graphic novels, the acclaimed He Done Her Wrong. Gross was also a popular comic-strip creator (with hilarious cartoon-style Yiddish-isms), novelist, produced animation (for Disney and MGM), and was a screenwriter (and co-writer of films with no less than Charlie Chaplin).
IDW Publishing and Yoe Books are very proud to be releasing the “lost” graphic novel, Milt Gross’ New York,this December. In a mind-blowing, laugh-filled, freewheeling tour of New York, Gross’ character, Pop, and his sidekick son, blast through the East Side, the West Side, Chinatown, and Harlem. The demented duo roar through Yankee Stadium, the New York Public Library and Coney Island! This is really the Big Apple like you have never seen before and it’s all kinds of amazing!
