A loving time capsule of midcentury Canadiana
The 2008 debut of The Collected Doug Wright: Canada's Master Cartoonist introduced the world to the charms of Canada's mischievous little kid Nipper, who appeared in newspapers across the country in the mid-twentieth century. Nipper is the first in a series of paperback annuals that will collect two years' worth of Wright's ingenious and enduring comic strip. This volume covers a peak period in Wright's four-decade career as he comes into his own as an iconic cartoonist capable of documenting middle-class suburban existence in all its minute joys and indignities. Packed with period details and loaded with charm, these collections of sublime wordless strips feature designs by the acclaimed cartoonist Seth and a brief introduction by the writer Brad Mackay.
