Críticas:

A saucy joy.

The top pin-up cartoonist of his generation.

The 100 pages' worth of cartoons of comely, curvy cuties come culled from low-rent men's digest magazines of the 1940s and 1950s -- now-forgotten rags with happy-go-lucky names like Romp, Joker and Laugh Riot. But Cole's contributions are visually indelible. --Rod Lott

A saucy joy. "

Cole's goddesses were estrogen souffles who mesmerized the ineffectual saps who lusted after them. --Art Spiegelman"

This is the best sort of cheesecake. The historical text piece puts these works and the career of Mr. Cole into context, and creates a fascinating, entertaining, and timeless volume. ...I'm betting you'll read it again and again. Rating: 9/10. --Jeremy Nisen"

Classic pin-ups from a giant of the comics field.... Jack Cole was a masterful comic book artist who helped define the golden age of his art form.

Cole was a leading figure of mid-20th-century popular culture.--Terry England

Reseña del editor:

Jack Cole has been justly celebrated as the creator of Plastic Man and an innovative comic-book artist of the 1940s (especially in Art Spiegelman and Chip Kidd's Jack Cole and Plastic Man: Forms Stretched To Their Limits). However, after finishing his 14-year run on the title, he found himself looking for something new and decided to develop his craft at single panel “gag” cartoons, which led work for the Humorama line of “girls and gags” magazines. His ability to render the female form was already without peer, and exquisite line drawings and a mastery of ink-wash soon appeared. The Classic Pin-Up Art of Jack Cole, now in softcover, collects the rare '50s pin-ups that led to the artist's gig as Playboy's marquee cartoonist. Along with a foreword by editor Alex Chun, this volume (originally released in a now out-of-print hardcover edition that fetches high prices in the secondhand market) collects the best of these hidden gems, including several shot from Cole's stunning original art. Most of these drawings had not seen print elsewhere since their original publication.

Descripción Fantagraphics, United States, 2010. Paperback. Condición: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. In the rarefied realm of classic cartoon pin-up art, nobody did it better than Jack Cole. With his quirky line drawings and sensual watercolors, Cole, under Hugh Hefner s guiding hand, catapulted to stardom in the 1950s as Playboy s marquee cartoonist, a position he held until his untimely death at the age of 43. Jack Cole has been justly celebrated as the creator of Plastic Man and an innovative comic book artist of the 1940s (especially in Art Spiegelman and Chip Kidd s Jack Cole and Plastic Man: Forms Stretched to Their Limits). After finishing his 14-year run on Plastic Man, he found himself looking for something new. According to Cole, his savior was the Humorama line of down-market digest magazines. This girls and gags magazine circuit proved to be the perfect training ground to regain his footing and develop his craft at single panel gag cartoons. His ability to render the female form was already without peer. Though he signed his cartoons Jake, Cole s exquisite line drawings and masterful use of ink-wash -- a skill he carried over to Playboy -- betrayed his pseudonym. In comparison to his contemporaries, however, Cole was probably Humorama s least prolific artist. Though his images were frequently used for covers, Cole s cartoons were few and far between, with scarcely a single drawing appearing every five issues. Along with a foreword by editor Alex Chun, this volume (originally released in a now out-of-print hardcover edition that now fetches high prices on the secondhand market) collects the best of these hidden gems, including several shot from Cole s stunning original art. Most of these drawings have not seen print elsewhere since their original publication. Nº de ref. del artículo: AAS9781606992845
