4.0 out of 5 stars Wonderfully diverse and grim collection spanning Addam's entire career at The New Yorker, 1 Feb 2014
This review is from: The World of Charles Addams (Paperback)
As usual for comics, I resort to simple bullet points

* This title includes 300 comics and 24 New Yorker covers in very large format.

* Print quality and reproduction is good; the 24 covers are color and sprinkled periodically through the book

* All these comics demonstrate Addams' grim and delightful wit

* It is important to note, however, that while the Addams family is pictured on the cover, they only comprise about 10% of the total comics. So do not be fooled into thinking this is at all focused on this one particular family unit. This is a broad survey of Addams' work not one centered on that family we all know so well.

5.0 out of 5 stars A brilliant collection of Addams dark humour, 14 Jan 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: The World of Charles Addams (Paperback)
Charles Addams is best known as the creater of the Addams Family. His involvenemt with the TV series was minimal, the films even less so. So it is nice to see the original insperation reprinted. Addams published 13 volumes of collected work this compelation includes the best from those works.
If you've ever read a Gary Larson cartoon and raised a smile then be prepared to find him wan and gutless in what he does Addams is the master of dark humour and takes risks and challenges the audiance in a way modern cartoons are too sanatised to attempt.
If you've never read Addams before then read this, if your a fan of the Addams Family TV Show or Films read this or you just want to be horrified and amused at the same time then you couldn't do better

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book, 11 Sep 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very nice book- a brief 6 page introduction followed by 300 pages of his best cartoons, one to a page, with 8 of his colour cartoons. Quality printing on good paper- if you're a fan of Addams then you can't really go wrong with this.

By A Customer
This review is from: The World of Charles Addams (Paperback)
This is lovely book to dip into - for the cynical - very funny, but only for those with a dark sense of black humour! It has an early intro to the "addams family" - moricia and gomez et al - plus much more! enjoy!!! i give it 6 of five!!

4.0 out of 5 stars A beautifully dark, funny world, 26 July 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: The World of Charles Addams (Paperback)
This collection of cartoons-which includes several of the original Addams family, in all its ghoulish glory-is perfect reading for the evening, or just before going to sleep. I'll never forget the one in which Gomez's predecessor (unnamed in the cartoons) gazes out the window at a violent storm and exclaims, "Just the kind of day that makes you feel good to be alive!"
