Top Customer Reviews
Wright's work was nowhere the equivalent of Charles Schultz as the publishers of the book try to assert. At best he was a good storyteller but with not much imagination or groundbreaking ideas. Even Hank Ketcham' Dennis the Menace was more "profound" with themes relatively similar.
As for the quality of the book, many of the strips were not cleaned up and showed the ridges of the original newspapers they were scanned from. Readers deserve more than bloated scans without any retouching. Interested readers might as well go to public archives and find similar source material at the same quality. There's no value added to this book.
The illustration work of Wright is good though and rendering silent scenes is his specialty.
