TROTS AND BONNIE by Shary Flenniken

For cartoonists of a certain age (ahem), Shary Flenniken’s incredible, groundbreaking comic strip Trots and Bonnie, published in the pages of 70’s-80’s era National Lampoon, has long been talked about in hushed whispers of admiration and mystery. Bonnie is a precocious girl and Trots is her wry little dog, and together they get into all kinds of smart, cutting edge, satirical misadventures. Lest you think this is some sort of watered-down YA-Youth title, be aware that the adventures they get into are of the decidedly adult kind. No not pornographic, although there is sex, lots of sex, and quite a bit of it shocking– but adult in terms of intelligence, wit, humor, and daring. These are some of the greatest comic strips of all time, anchored in the form of the Classic American Newspaper Sunday (full page, detailed, lovingly produced) but with all the edge and surprise of their time. I’ve been waiting for this book for forty years, no lie– I’m pinching myself, but it really exists! Highly recommended. 160 page hardcover, 11.25″ x 9.25″, color and black and white interiors.
