Volume Four collects the post-WWII years, continuing five-year-old Barnaby Baxter and his Fairy Godfather's misadventures. In its combination of sly wit, a child's feeling of wonder and a keen eye for the ridiculous, Barnaby expanded our sense of what comics can do. The magic of Barnaby resides in its mix of fantasy and satire, amplified by the elegance of Crockett Johnson's clean, spare art. Designed by Daniel Clowes, this volume features a foreword by cartoonist Trina Robbins, and essays by comics historian Jared Gardner and Johnson biographer Philip Nel.
