4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent material, not so excellent presentation
This collection is themed around Charles Addams depictions of courtship and marriage. While a few feature familiar faces, they are mostly one off characters. From the gentleman buying railway tickets to the woman's impatient reaction to her husband's attempted suicide, they all tread a dark path through human relationships, and are as hilarious as would be expected of...

2.0 out of 5 stars fabulous cartoons, terrible edition.
Charles Adams' genius is hard to convey with this edition, it looks as though the prints were done by a six-year old using a school photocopier from the 1980's. Some of the small print in the cartoons is unreadable. Really disappointing. (I also bought my husband a vintage edition , very funny and completely clear prints, so hunt out those instead).

This review is from: Chas Addams Happily Ever After: A Collection of Cartoons to Chill the Heart of You (Paperback)
This collection is themed around Charles Addams depictions of courtship and marriage. While a few feature familiar faces, they are mostly one off characters. From the gentleman buying railway tickets to the woman's impatient reaction to her husband's attempted suicide, they all tread a dark path through human relationships, and are as hilarious as would be expected of the creator of The Addams Family. The problem arises in the means of production, as the originals appear to have been digitally processed, resulting in a general fuzziness, and in several cartoons an inability to make out the fine detail obscures the actual joke. Some cartoons are obviously idea prototypes, a couple without punchlines at all, but the artistry and situation are still appealing. Quibles aside, this is a good selection and an opportunity to look into the wider world of Chas Addams.
