Chicken Fat - Will Elder SC
By Will Elder. The companion volume to Will Elder: The Mad Playboy of Art. Elder coined the term "chicken fat" to describe the myriad background gags crammed into his stories for MAD, Panic, Little Annie Fanny, and others. This is a collection of those drawings (and sketches) and a variety of obscure commercial illustrations over the course of Elder's long career. Elder's stable of characters is also represented, including the more obscure Anthony Adverse. Plus, caricatures, studies of classic comics characters (including the iconic Wedding of Popeye and Olive Oyl), and more. SC, 8x10, 96pgs, PC.
