As with a lot of high-concept comics features, Kurtzman's and Elder's ultra-high-concept "Little Annie Fanny" is best taken in small doses--as a reading experience, at least. Harvey Kurtzman's approach to humor here was topical to a fault and not at all subtle, with the thud of anvils often drowning out what chuckles might otherwise have been had. Visually, however, both volumes of the collected strip are feasts for the eyes of fans of good-girl art, with the added joy of its unmistakable Mad magazine underpinnings. Kurtzman's dense yet masterful layouts are where his true genius comes to the fore, and they are given splendid realization in full painted color by his indispensable collaborator Will Elder, with an informal roster of fellow greats lending a hand-- Jack Davis, Russ Heath, Frank Frazetta and Al Jaffee, just to name the ones that come immediately to mind. Serviceable articles on the development (vol. 1) and production flow (vol. 2) are included, as well as capsule overviews of each episode that go a fair way to clarifying the increasingly dated (and not always obvious at the time) topical references.

Excellent compilation of the Little Annie Fanny cartoons featured in Playboy magazine. Very high quality reproduction.

This was very, very disappointing for me. The political satires do not stand up in time, antiquated. There is zil sexual intimation. But the worse part is that about HALF of the contents are REPEATS from Volume 1, which you should buy instead---better quality, too. DO NOT BUY VOL 2! Rated less than one star.
