This is the first extensive reprinting of comics stories by the celebrated American illustrator A.B. Frost (1851-1928), who in addition to his penwork and paintings was also a pioneer of the comic strip. This book collects the three albums of "sequential graphic stories" he published in his lifetime, and includes a variety of stories that highlight Frost's extraordinary skill at caricature and slapstick humor.
"A.B. Frost is the only comic artist we have or have had; the rest are mostly a disgrace even to this land of artless, childish vulgarians. Frost is still living, but art editors are dead." – Joseph Pennell, Pen Drawing and Draughtsmen: Their Work and Methods, 1920
