Before he delighted fans with Mad Libs, comedian Roger Price invented Droodles — absurdly funny drawings that joined hula hoops and UFOs as one of the biggest fads of the 1950s. At the peak of their popularity, Droodles had their own TV show, daily newspaper column, bestselling books, and even cocktail napkins. But Droodles — and the remarkable legacy of Roger Price — have been forgotten by all but a few diehard fans.
Tallfellow Press has released The Ultimate Droodles Compendium: The Absurdly Complete Collection of All the Classic Zany Creations of Roger Price, arranged and annotated by Emmy-winning writer Fritz Holznagel and featuring a foreword by America’s best-known film historian, critic, and author, Leonard Maltin.
Meet Holznagel at Hub Comics on Saturday, March 16th at 2pm! Draw your own Droodles, learn about Roger Price, pick up this great new book, and get it signed!
