Features one of the greatest comickers of all: Milt Gross. The Gross-ness starts off with a stunning cover done in the 1930s but ripped from today's headlines. It's all about immigration: Uncle Sam grinds up a sea of immigrants and out come classic comic characters. The Arf books are famed for unearthing unknown Old Skool cartoonist geniuses. Comic Arf showcases the brilliant Dudley Fisher who amazingly drew crowded scenes all from a bird's eye view. And Arch Dale is another unsung genius who gets his due. Also features the 15 Most Powerful Anti-War Cartoons of History.

The Arf magazine format books are always interesting, digging up often less well known graphic creators from different times or countries that one might never have otherwise heard of or seen the work of.
