Summary
"Father and Son is one of the most beloved comic strips ever drawn--an uproarious, timeless ode to the pleasures, pitfalls, and endless absurdity of family life. Created in Germany in 1934 by the political cartoonist Erich Ohser (using the pseudonym E.O. Plauen after being persecuted for his opposition to the Nazi regime), the gruff, loving, mustachioed father and his sweet but troublemaking son embark on adventures both everyday and extraordinary: family photo shoots and summer vacations, shipwrecks and battles with gangsters, a Christmas feast with forest animals, and a trip to the zoo. Drawn almost entirely without dialogue, the Father and Son strips overflow with slapstick, fantasy, and anarchic visual puns. Like Calvin and Hobbes or The Simpsons, it is a slyly heartwarming, dizzyingly inventive classic"--
