The Someday Funnies is a long-awaited collection of comic strips created in the early 1970s by world-famous artists and writers. What started out as a special insert for Rolling Stone took on a life—and mythology—of its own as Montreal writer/editor Michel Choquette traveled across two continents, commissioning this visual chronicle of the 1960s, only to find himself without a publishing partner or the financial support to continue—until now! Abrams ComicArts has brought Choquette’s dream to life this month, publishing his tome of commissioned cartoonists and comic book luminaries such as Will Eisner, Art Spiegelman, Harvey Kurtzman, R.O. Blechman, Jack Kirby, Ralph Steadman and many more. I’ve included a couple of samples below.
The Someday Funnies, Edited by Michel Choquette / Foreword by Jeet Heer. Published by Abrams ComicArts, November 2011, Can. $62.00, ISBN: 978-0-8109-9618-2
