Format: Hardcover
The uniquely quirky genius of Mad's Al Jaffee, the master of the Fold-In and Snappy Answers to Stupid questions, is reborn in this long, slim, beautifully designed collection of vertical sight gags. Laughter builds as you turn each page. Suitable for adults and smart kids who love to laugh. [...], it looks like a million. The introduction by Steven Colbert kicks off the humor and makes Tall Tales an immediate collectors'item.

Unique perspective, and I am just not talking about the vertical format give these comics charm and timelessness.

I had no idea this book existed, but a friend who knew I like comics gave it to me as a gift. This stuff is GREAT! The same sense of humor that gave us the crazy back covers on Mad magazine which when folded revelaed hidden pictures. Similar in nature to Sergio Aragones' drawings in the margins. I love this book.

Tall Tales is a book of one page comics that Jaffee did for newspapers prior to becoming famous at Mad Magazine for his Fold Ins and "Snappy Answers". The comics are really great, and show off the wit and genius that Jaffee has. He can do more in one page than other artists can do in an entire book. If you are a fan of Mad or Al Jaffee then you will definitely love this book. It is called 'Tall Tales' because of the size of the book, instead of multi page comics, they are all on long vertical strips. So instead of looking 'across' the page to get the joke you have to look 'up and down'. It is a fast read obviously, but well worth it.
