Top Customer Reviews

Format: Hardcover
Williams was, for about a thirty year period in the middle of the 20th century, the preeminent cartoonist of Americana -- real Americans doing real stuff -- surpassing even Wash Tubbs and Gasoline Alley.

He used the umbrella title "Out Our Way" to feature a number of fine-lined, and carefully rendered ongoing cartoon worlds which drew upon the writer-artist's personal background as a muleskinner, industrial machinist, railroad fireman, and cowboy "in ways that make the individual episodes -- each self-contained panel suggesting a larger story -- as resonant today as when new...." With Williams, his depictions of landscape, animals, and the "real stuff" of the West are as crucial as the more cartoony depictions of his characters. Williams was known for the ongoing "Born 30 Years Too Soon," "Why Mothers Get Gray," "The Willetts," and "The Bull of the Woods." However, his most treasured and historically significant work were the "Out Our Way" cowboy cartoons.

"'It was just this little knack I'd developed for drawing things,' Williams told The Saturday Evening Post in 1953. 'Nobody outside the bunkhouse or the machine shop had ever seemed to want my style of small-town humor, but I was too stubborn to give up.'"

Hardcover with pictorial boards and dustjacket.

The seller carefully detailed "glitches" in the book that I sure couldn't find! Thanks!
