5.0 out of 5 stars Creepy and kooky in equal measure, 29 Jan 2011

This review is from: The Addams Family: An Evilution (Hardcover)
There have been many collections of Chas Addams's cartoons over the years and for those of us brought up on the TV Addams Family, this one is particularly satisfying. It presents the illustrations on a character-by-character basis and gives some fascinating insights into differences between the cartoon character and the later incarnation. Gomez was originally more of a sleazeball than a suave swashbuckler, Lurch was blind in one eye and Thing (or THE Thing) was more of a 'Kilroy was here' peeping presence than a disembodied hand. And did you know that Cousin Itt only ever appeared twice in print? This is all the more fasinating when you learn how tightly Addams controlled the content of the programme - it was a genuinely evolving creative process rather than others messing about with his vision.

A must for friends of 'The Family' everywhere!

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful!, 31 Mar 2012

This review is from: The Addams Family: An Evilution (Hardcover)
after watching the real addams family (60's) i bought this book and its just fantastic to see how Addams really intended his characters to be the illustrations are fun and if you love the characters and shows/movies you will love this book. It also includes notes by Charles Addams himself. It really gives you an indepth explanation of each character and how they became the iconic characters they are today! Such a timeless style and book, its something every addams family must have!

4.0 out of 5 stars An immensely high-quality introduction to the family in 30 minutes or less, 11 Feb 2014
This review is from: The Addams Family: An Evilution (Hardcover)
For a change I actually bought this book with my own money. Am I glad I did.... mostly.

So on the positive side this book is exceptionally high quality printing. The pages are good heavy stock and the printing is exceptional. Even the dust jacket is expertly executed though the font chosen for the title is a bit cheesy.

The negative comes because I just expected there to be more of it. This isn't a cheap book by any means and I was done with it in the span of 30 minutes or so. Of the 221 pages in this book about 20 of them are printed material, such as the background for each character or the book's introduction, and the rest are full-page reprints of the original comics. Maybe this is all there actually *IS* to be printed but it felt like there had to be more. I honestly don't know if there *IS* more or not but it just doesn't feel like everything.

In summary, this is a great book in many ways but it leaves me wanting something else. More back-story, more comics, more anything. It's on the bloody edge of being worth what I paid for it.
