From the publication of his first cartoon exactly one hundred years ago to his death in 1949, Robert Storm Petersen, who signed his work Storm P., created tens of thousands of cartoons, comic strips, illustrations, advertisements, paintings, and short storiesâ?"all sharing a sunny but sometimes rueful outlook, with a persistently sharp eye for lifeâ?Ts absurdities. But Storm P. was best known for his hilarious single cartoons, which often returned to a small circle of themes: philosophical but work-shy hobos with extravagant names, jovial or sinister but always absent-minded professors, impossible Rube Goldberg-esque inventions, henpecked or delinquent husbands and their irritated wives... as well as amused commentaries on the news stories or trends of the day. Storm P.â?Ts work is utterly unknown in the U.S., but the release of this spectacular coffee-table book, on the 100th anniversary of his earliest published cartoons, will soon rectify this. With hundreds upon hundreds of Storm P.â?Ts most hilarious and visually dazzling cartoons and comic strips Storm P.: A Century of Laughter will introduce American readers to one of the great unknown cartooning geniuses of the 20th century.
