Woody Allen's classic neurosis, Jewish identity, humorous life philosophy and complex relationships are embodied in the comic strip, "Inside Woody Allen". "Dread & Superficiality: Woody Allen as Comic Strip" is a collection of the best of these comic strips, that were syndicated daily by King Features from 1976 to 1984, illustrated by Stuart Hample in collaboration with Woody Allen. This contemporary compilation of Woody Allen comics is shot off the original art, and includes sketches, photographs, and development work by Woody Allen, offering a rare glimpse into an aspect of his career that has long been overlooked. Working closely with Woody Allen, Stuart Hample has put together a smart and funny set of comics that shows 220 of the unique strips in full color. "Dread & Superficiality: Woody Allen as Comic Strip" is a gathering of tremendous talent, from the illustrations by Stuart Hample, to the immortal Woody Allen wit, to the illustrated introduction by R. Buckminster Fuller.
About the Author
Stuart Hample, chronic self-doubter, writer, cartoonist, and self-styled "multi-media failure", has written, edited, and illustrated more than twenty books, including the international bestseller Children's Letters to God. Woody Allen is a comic, writer, and filmmaker whose prolific career has spanned more than five decades. He writes frequently for The New Yorker, and is the author of Getting Even, Without Feathers, Side Effects, and Mere Anarchy. R. Buckminster Fuller (1895-1983) was a visionary of the modern age. In his work as an architect, inventor, engineer, writer, mathematician, and educator, he devoted himself to designing objects, buildings, and cars that he hoped would solve many of the problems facing humanity while consuming the minimum of earth's resources.
