Autobiographical Funnies

Autobiographical comic strips are appearing at the moment. We mentioned Lennie Peterson winding down his The Big Picture with a history. And The Daily Cartoonist Facebook page recently showcased the 1948 series of comic strip creators doing graphic autobiographies for Collier’s magazine. Meanwhile last Saturday (Friday prologue?) saw Bill Griffith sit down with Bill Griffith in Zippy the Pinhead to review his cartooning career. A continuity still going on today.

The Fine Arts, Underground Comix, Ed Emshwiller, Reginald Marsh, Scrooge McDuck, Jackson Pollack, and more show Griffy the way to his own path. An enjoyable and recommended read.
