Format: Hardcover
I wasn't prepared to find anything particularly revelatory about this book, since I've owned most of those stories for decades, and I was never as interested in his funny animal work as I was in his "realistic" work. But I didn't take into account Craig Yoe's talent as a creator of books on classic comics.
A young Frank Frazetta, after having his first comics story published at 16, spent his time as an assistant at Fiction House, hoping to break into comics. Standard Comics was his real entry into the industry, but "only" doing cartoon illustrations for text stories, and then funny animal stories. Until he sat up all night learning anatomy out of a textbook, he wasn't considered ready to draw human characters.
What is so often overlooked about Frazetta is that his love of drawing nature was always an essential part of his work, from the outset. I've often said that he was surely the greatest background and scenery artist ever to draw comics, notably in his Dan Brand series for M.E. Comics. As he himself said in an interview, he was the paradox of a tough guy who loved to draw flowers. The text illustrations alone are like an advanced course in scenery drawing for cartoonists.
The introduction cleverly makes the point that this funny animal work was the material Frazetta considered to be his true self, and the way these stories and illustrations are presented really brings out the abundant talent and freshness of his work, mostly done while still in his teens. And while most funny animal artists closely followed the style established by Disney animators in the 1930s, Frazetta had a unique approach.

It's rare to think of an editor as an auteur, but Craig Yoe and his Yoe Books imprint, continue to publish some of the best designed books in the history of the comics medium. Every book released is impeccably produced as it's own unique piece of art, reflecting the subject within.

I no longer have to "collect" comics anymore, instead, I'm able to enjoy some of the best work by comic's greatest authors meticulously reprinted as they were originally with generous historical essays and ephemera.

The latest volume, Frazetta Funny Stuff, focuses on the funny animal and humor work of comic legend, Frank Frazetta. Reprinting 27 complete stories, the book is not only a testament to Frazetta's versatility, but also the magnitude of his talent. This is a collection to be savored and embraced.

My exposure to Frazetta's humor work was previously limited to several stories and reprints from the early nineties, but with this volume I've had the opportunity to enjoy this highly recommended output by a master cartoonist. This book is amazing and kudos to both Yoe Books and IDW for producing an flawless tome. Highly recommended.

It's kinda cliche, but Oh my god! This book is amazing. I've been a huge Frazetta fan since the late 60's and I've seen a lot of his funny stuff before (Small Wonders is a great collection) but this book is incredible! The reproduction quality is unbelievable. The attention to detail is magnificent. The colors probably look better than the original printings.Everything about this book just screams of its' being compiled and edited by someone who has an absolute passion for this material. And the book is massive! If you are interested in Frazetta and want a look at the other stuff he did (no barbarians of jungle girls here) this is the book to get. We can only hope that the people behind this book come out with more covering the other aspects of this incredibly talented artist.

I have to start off saying that I am prejudice. Frank Farzetta is just short of being a god to me. His talent and abilities are awe inspiring and I regret never having been able to shake his hand. His art whether it is serious illustration,comic book or comic strip has encouraged millions to pick up pen,pencil and/or brush to try their hands at creativity. Frank Frazetta is the 20th century DaVinci and this book will be a prize to anyone who admires his versatility!

If you've ever watched the Frazetta: Painting With Fire DVD, he talks about this stuff. Frazetta loved doing funny stuff, and his artwork is a treasure to behold in these classic stories. I can see why Disney kept on trying to get him - his comics were rivaling whatever Disney's artists were doing in comics form (Walt Kelly, Gottfriedson, and the great Carl Barks were probably looking over their shoulders at what Frank was doing all the time). These are great to read to your kids (buy two - one for the parent, the other for the child), and enjoy a more relaxed and entertaining Frazetta; plus all that beautiful artwork!
