The Someday Funnies, a large-format compendium of comic strips about the 60s produced by NatLamp’s Michel Choquette. It is a superb collection, beautifully produced. Contributors include not only prominent comic artists such as Eisner, Kirby and Wood, and undergrounders like Deitch, Griffith, Bode and Lynch but also such major non-comix figures of the creative and intellectual worlds as Ginsburg, Zappa, Burroughs, and Fellini.
And I am in there too, with a script illustrated by Frank Brunner, putting Tarzan into the action at the Chicago political riots of 1968. I am delighted to be in such refined, distinguished company. I now feel that I have made some small mark on the world which will outlast me and have contributed to something of cultural significance.
This project took Choquette three years to assemble in the early 70s and then his publishing agreement fell apart. It slept in his drawer for almost 40 years but recently a publisher sought him out and the book is now available at discount at Amazon and at cover price at Barney Noble’s.
