How does one review a book of cartoons? Can't really talk about the plot, but there are some recurring characters. Some of Charles Addams' cartoons, for those who don't already know, were used as the basis, or inspiration, for the TV series The Addams Family. And many of those characters make their appearance in these cartoons - Morticia, Gomez, Lurch, Wednesday, Puggsley, even Grandmama - although I don't believe any of them are named herein. This collection spans Addams' career, from the '30s through his death in '88 (one of the last cartoons was published in 1990). I guess I like fairly morbid humor, and many of these cartoons got a chuckle out of me, even though some of the early ones are definitely not PC (for today's world). One of the things that most impressed me was the incredible detail in some of Addams' drawings - quite a few of the cartoons don't have captions, and I occasionally had to look it over carefully to get the joke, often "hidden" in a small detail. A nice collection with good reproductions. A fun book to sit and page through for a few minutes here and there.
