ED VS YUMMY FUR by Brian Evenson

In this, the debut installment in Uncivilized’s Critical Cartoons series, writer Brian Evenson tackles the way the serialized comic book has evolved into the “graphic novel” through the example of Chester Brown’s groundbreaking “Ed the Happy Clown,” originally serialized in Yummy Fur, and later edited into the “graphic-novel” form. Evenson examines what got left in, what got left out, what got changed, and why. Includes an all-new interview with Brown himself. 142 pages, 5″ x 7.5″, text with illustrations, including several full color plates. (Uncivilized)
