DC REPRINTS FOX & CROW!

foxcrowcom.jpgWell not quite.The Fox and Crow, Flippity & Flop, Sugar & Spike, and Nutsy Squirrel are a few of the characters who get a page devoted to them in a new book, The Golden Age of DC Comics: 365 Days by Les Daniels, Chip Kidd and Geoff Spear (Abrams, hardcover, $29.95).goldendc.jpgThe book is an elaborate page-a-day calendar. Each spread represents a particular day, with a little informational paragraph by Daniels about a DC comics character on one side, and a huge Kidd/Spear color dots enlarged comics panel image on the other. The Fox & Crow appear on April 13th and June 21st.Of course there are numerous of pictures of Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman from dozens of golden age comics – but how often do we see images of Dodo and the Frog (a favorite of mine – drawn by animator Otto Feuer) in a coffee table book?
