The Amazing Fletcher Hanks

Paul Karasik and Fantagraphics are going to be releasing a book collecting the best work of early comics artist Fletcher Hanks sometime this Spring, and the world will never be the same. Hanks wrote and drew about 60 stories from 1938 -1941, and they remain unique and utterly original. I became obsessed with Hanks a few years ago and finally managed to collect every single one of his stories, and now I will be able to share with you, since many of the stories in the Hanks volume were scanned by yours truly.

Here's a quick interview with Paul about the book along with a representative sample of Fletcher Hanks art. Prepare to discover a true comics genius!
