The Invasion Begins!

Welcome news from BoingBoing about a new art book devoted to the great Norman Saunders, a big favourite of mine as demonstrated by my old posts about his tranding card and pulp magazine paintings. This is a long-overdue celebration of a great, ghoulish, American artist, and I, for one, highly recommend it. Compiled by his son, David Saunders, the new 368-page book promises to be "The definitive hard-bound coffee table art book on the artist who created Mars Attacks, Wacky Packs, Batman Cards, Pre-Code Comics, Men's Adventure Magazines, Paperbacks, Pulps and countless icons of Pin-Ups, Monsters, Robots, Mayhem, Nazis, Aliens and Space Ships." Ahhh... how wonderful!
