The Glamor Girls of Don Flowers
When the life of Don Flowers was cut short in 1968 by the ill effects of emphysema, he left behind a career in newspaper cartooning that spanned more than four decades, as well as one of the most fluid lines ever to grace the comics page. His cartoons evoked images of Russell Patterson and Hank Ketcham, and nowhere was this more evident than in his quintessential single-panel pin-up cartoon, the aptly named Glamor Girls. Whether blondes or brunettes, showgirls or housewives, Flowers rendered his comely protagonists with equal aplomb.
Continuing Fantagraphics Books' popular pin-up series, this volume collects the best of those cartoons, and showcases Flowers at height of his skill. The Glamor Girls of Don Flowers also features a foreword by cartoon legend Sergio Aragonés and an introductory essay by editor Alex Chun.
