This superb collection reprints the very earliest work by Pulitzer Prize-winning cartoonist Jules Feiffer — much of it shot from the original art! This second volume concludes the "Clifford" strips begun in Volume 1, and features the beginnings of Feiffer's political material. "Munro" is the story of a little kid who is drafted (the military won't admit its mistake), and three long-lost syndicate proposals (Kermit, Dopple and Natalie), as well as some ultra-rare illustration work from the '50s. No fan of comics history can afford to be without these volumes.

"Feiffer: The Collected Works clearly shows Jules Feiffer's development as a comics pioneer and as an artist, writer, and social commentator of the first degree, beginning with his witty-but-wide-eyed boy characters Clifford and Munro (both startlingly prescient of such hits as Calvin and Hobbes). – Los Angeles Reader

"[Munro is] one of Feiffer's great successes... reason enough to [buy] this album." – Booklist
