Forty years ago, the late comics genius Harvey Kurtzman created a marvelous beatnik take on the ancient Esop fable that appeared in Esquire magazine, where the panels were reproduced small and blurry. The story remained forgotten and unknown, even to most Kurtzman fans, until Denis Kitchen Publishing released this rediscovered gem in a Smythe-sewn hardcover in 2000. Now BOOM! Town, in association with DKP, offers readers a second chance to own this Kurtzman classic. Selected as ‘One of the Best 100 Graphic Novels’ in Steve Weiner’s book of the same name, this 10′ square hardcover is shrink-wrapped to assure mint condition. Introduction by Denis Kitchen.
