Book Review: Felix the Cat: The Great Comic Book Tails > Craig Yoe

Posted in Uncategorized on September 24, 2010 by ComiCrazys

At long last, FANTASTIC FELIX FRIDAY is here! That’s right, Craig Yoe, has declared that today, the fourth Friday of September, shall forever more be celebrated as FANTASTIC FELIX FRIDAY! “Why?”, you may ask. Well, the answer is obvious – to commemorate the release of Craig’s latest gift to kids!

Felix the Cat: The Great Comic Book Tails

Craig has asked several comic bloggers (see list below) to kick this event, the very first, FANTASTIC FELIX FRIDAY!, off with a BANG!!! So to that end, Craig has generously allowed, and even supplied, stories from Felix the Cat: The Great Comic Book Tails to be previewed on our blogs!!! Does Craig know the art of promotion, or what?!!

So without further ado, here is the story, ROBOTERIA from Felix the Cat: The Great Comic Book Tails for you to enjoy.

Wasn’t that great?!! Now, just think. That was only 8-pages in a 224-page, large format, hardbound book, that collects some wonderful stories from the 1940s and 50s Felix the Cat comic book series!!! Felix the Cat: The Great Comic Book Tails is a fantastic effort from Craig Yoe.

The term genius is thrown about so carelessly today that it has lost all its impact. That being said, after you read the 184 pages of comics in Felix the Cat: The Great Comic Book Tails you will certainly find that the word “genius” doesn’t even come close to describing the art and career of Otto Messmer.

If you remember the fun TV show, Felix the Cat produced by Otto Messmer’s at one time, assistant, incredible cartoonist, and heir to Felix the Cat, Joe Oriolo, and loved it as I did, then pick up this book and read the brilliant stories from Felix’s original creator, Otto Messmer. Read them to your children, or to yourself. Have your children read them to you, or to themselves.

So have a FANTASTIC FELIX FRIDAY!!! Click now to order your copy of Felix the Cat: The Great Comic Book Tails, then go to these blogs to enjoy more fantastic Felix comics.

Alberto Becattini

Thank you so much Mr. Becattini for the kind words and information. As a note to everyone, when I put in the title of a post that the artist is unknown, that is either because the artist was not credited in the comic or, because of my serious lacking of funny books history. It is usually due to the latter. So please, feel free to send me any information that I may be missing in some posts. I would love to credit all the great cartoonists that bring smiles to our faces with their fabulous works. Thanks =)
