    One thought on “Black Maria”

    1. Addams s offbeat and occasionally macabre humour is well displayed here We get several Addams Family cartoons plus a bunch of others, most depending on some odd incongruity a scuba diver in an aquarium, a cardinal of the religious type in a bird feeder, animals going two by two onto a modern ocean liner, etc , with part of the joke depending on passers by or observers noticing with wide eyes but no other reaction the weirdness in their midst Part of the humour is therefore located in the contras [...]

    2. I have to admit there were a few cartoons where I didn t get the gagdidn t realize what a huge debt Gary Larson had to Addams Good stuff Nice first edition in the library.

    3. I love Addam s art, and definitely wish I could see this in a better printed form But for what it is, it s gorgeous.As for the jokes, they re mostly amusing albeit a few didn t click for someone born in the 1980s and as other reviewers have mentioned, the same joke of folks not noticing, or simply being shocked by noticing, the odd out of place element is used and abused.Still, I enjoyed the brief encounters and definitely am interested in tracking down of his work.

    4. I very much liked the Addams Family TV shows when I was younger, and this book was just as good, if not better than those The lightly macabre humor is absolutely perfect

    5. Delightfully macabre, albeit a bit repetitive in some ways A few gags don t stand the test of time one is outright racist , but most are timeless.

    6. I enjoyed this book when I was about the same age my daughter is now In unpacking my father s books I was able to share that delight with her.

    7. I found the less macabre cartoons entertaining than the darker ones And to me, being a lover of the macabre, that fact is just silly.
