Dirty Duck at The Book Palace

Ref: DIRTYDELUXE (Click for larger cover picture!)

Bobby London's legendary career as an underground cartoonist has spanned decades. London created his most enduring character, the outrageous and irrepressible Dirty Duck in 1971. He was a founding member of the infamous Air Pirates, and produced strips for National Lampoon during the heyday of that massively influential magazine.

After departing the Lampoon, the cigar-chomping Dirty Duck and his creator found a home at Playboy magazine. He wrote and drew the syndicated Popeye newspaper strip for six years until a major controversy ended his tenure on Segar's sailor.

This oversized volume will collect nearly all of London's influential Dirty Duck strips, from Air Pirates Funnies, National Lampoon, Playboy and other publications. Many of the strips have been scanned from the original art in the artist's vast personal archives, including rare and unpublished preliminary drawings.

A contemporary of Gilbert Shelton, R. Crumb and the ZAP crew, London's legacy is a major piece of history in the great American art form. In 1978 London was awarded the prestigious Yellow Kid Award for best writer/artist at the Lucca Comics Festival for his work on Dirty Duck.
