With the release of the Oscar-winning Skippy movie in 1931, Percy Crosby had his biggest stage at precisely the moment he was committing himself to bringing his creative and political work together. Skippy suddenly was everywhere and Crosby was determined to use his visibility and influence as one of the most successful cartoonists of his generation to transform a society in the grips of a deepening Depression and the late years of the failed policy of Prohibition. Like his beloved Skippy, Crosby had yet to back down from a fight, no matter how daunting the opposition. This volume, reprinting all dailies form 1931-1933, brings us to some of Percy Crosby's most inspired strips of Skippy's long run. Bonus materials include many photographs and rare artwork from the collection of the cartoonist's daughter, Joan Crosby Tibbetts.

9.5" x 8.5" hardcover-with-dustjacket, 340 pp, $49.99, ISBN: 978-1-63140-020-9.

"A scintillating collection of the greatest children's comic strip ever."
