  • Art Out Of Time:


Crowley is one of nearly 30 American cartoonists featured in this eclectic anthology, artists whose work - created between 1900 and 1969 - was overshadowed by more successful contemporaries. Art Out of Time at last gives these pioneers the showcase they deserve, reprinting - in most cases for the first time since their initial publication - complete comic books and strips by such visionaries as Raymond Crawford Ewer, Howard Nostrand, Ogden Whitney, and Dick Briefer. These under-recognized artists often deviated from the thematic and graphic conventions of the comics medium - and influenced Crumb, Art Spiegelman, and others - making this superb anthology a true 'counter history,' the untold story of an underground that wasn't.
