This big volume collects all the art, advertisements, newspaper strips, greeting cards and comic book stories featuring the rascally rodent, Smilin' Ed Smiley created by the late cartoonist Raoul Vezina.
Smilin' Ed had a large following in the late 1970's and early 1980's until the untimely death of Vezina in 1984. Ed, a wisecracking rodent, gets involved with gangsters, crazed collectors, movie producers and even a television show. The humor is sly satire blended perfectly with Vezina's clever cartoon characters.
Lovin' Remembrances by Roger Green, Bill Anderson, Michael T. Gilbert, and Fred Hembeck, and a special heartfelt tribute from Raoul's sister, Maria Vezina.
Softcover, 9-in. x 12-in., 160 pages, B&W.
