  • Debuting in 1923 in Life magazine, Skippy moved to the comics pages in 1925 and soon became a sensation, published in 28 countries and 14 languages. In 1931, Skippy became the first comic strip to see its film version win an Academy Award. Crosby continued writing and drawing the feature until 1945.

    Perhaps more than any other cartoonist before him, Crosby brought philosophy and politics to the American newspaper comic strip, ultimately leading to his exile from comics and his forced incarceration in a mental institution for the last sixteen years of his life. As a result of his tragic end, Crosby’s remarkable contributions to American culture have been largely eclipsed, until now.

    Co-edited by Jared Gardner and Dean Mullaney, and designed by Lorraine Turner, the premiere volume contains the daily comics from 1925 through 1927 and is illustrated with many photographs and rare artwork from the collection of the cartoonist’s daughter, Joan Crosby Tibbetts, and Skippy, Inc.
