This nearly wordless romp from master cartoonist Roger Langridge is the author's paean to the silent, slapstick comedies of the 1910s and '20s, spun for a contemporary audience, starring his most popular character. It finds our hero Fred pitching the woo to a lovely equestrian. But with matrimony-minded fathers, boorish beaux, and malicious mad scientists interfering at every opportunity, what's a clown-and his faithful pig companion-to do? Langridge's velvety grays evoke the silent films of his patron saint, Buster Keaton (and, in this volume particularly, the latter's masterpiece, The General). His craft is at a zenith, and captures every screwball twist and turn of the heiress's and our hero's romantic roundabout.
