The Adventures of Venus

Fantagraphics, July 18, 2012

Johnny Gruelle's unjustly forgotten masterpiece is reprinted here for the first time since its initial appearance in 1911. Gruelle depicted a fantastical world filled with light whimsy and outlandish surrealism. The artwork is among the most stunning ever to grace an Amercian newspaper page, and Gruelle's painterly colors makes every page look like it was created on a canvas. This volume will present the first year of the forgotten masterpiece and selected episodes from later years, as well as special drawings, promotional material, and related artwork. A work for all times, all ages.
