About the Book
Remember how baffling, terrifying, and sadchildhood really was? Now you can laugh at it.
From the Publisher
In this thematically and narratively linked series of one-page stories originally published in the National Lampoon's "Funny Pages" section throughout the 1970s, Gahan Wilson eschewed his usual ghouls, vampires, and end-of-the-world scenarios for a wry, pointed look at growing up normal in the real, yet endlessly weird, world. Watch as our stoic, hunting-cap-wearing protagonist (known only as "The kid") copes with illness, strange old relatives, the disappointment of Christmas, life-threatening escapades, death, school, the awfulness of camp, and much more - all delineated in Wilson's roly-poly, sensual, delicately hatched line. Nuts was (partly) collected in a now long out-of-print volume back in 1979. If you don't remember what it was like being a child, this book will bring it all back... for good or for ill!
