Abstract:

Arguably the creator of the first underground comic book in the early 1960s, Frank Stack has been creating observational, iconoclastic art for more than fifty years. Foolbert funnies collects, for the first time, comics inspired by Stack's pop culture-filled childhood and travails as a fine arts professor, many of which were originally published under his pseudonym, Foolbert Sturgeon, in comic books and magazines such as National Lampoon. In Foolbert funnies, you'll find adventures of Dirty Diana; nostalgic time-traveler Frank Crankcase; commonsensical Dr. Feelgood; politician Paddy Booshwah; Southern-fried homicide; and a host of Amazons, artists, and pulp heroes.
