IDW's Library of American Comics launches its new oversized hardcover "Champagne Edition" series with what historians and critics consider one of the essential masterpieces of comic strip art, Cliff Sterrett's Polly and Her Pals.Polly debuted in 1912 as one of the first "pretty girl" strips, but it was in 1925 that Sterrett's magnificent Sunday pages entered their peak period, as he developed a style with distinctive surreal perspectives, abstract backgrounds, and bold, vibrant use of color. Polly and Her Pals: Complete Sunday Comics, 1925-1927 reproduces every one of Cliff Sterrett's dynamic full-color Sunday pages from 1925 to 1927 in a large, 12" x 16" format so that it can be fully appreciated. The pages also include Sterrett's topper strips, Damon and Pythias and Dot and Dash.-The Library of American Comics is the world's #1 publisher of classic newspaper comic strips, with 14 Eisner Award nominations and three wins for best book. LOAC has become "the gold standard for archival comic strip reprints...The research and articles provide insight and context, and most importantly the glorious reproduction of the material has preserved these strips for those who knew them and offers a new gateway to adventure for those discovering them for the first time." - Scoop

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Don't Ask! Just Buy It!--Douglas Wolk, Comics Alliance

"The early years of newspaper comics produced a handful of widely acknowledged masterworks, such as Little Nemo and Krazy Kat; this impressive [Polly and Her Pals] collection makes a convincing case that Sterrett's creation should be added to that honor roll." -- Gordon Flagg, Booklist

"Reading Polly and Her Pals gives one the same thrill that an archeologist must feel as he or she dusts off an antiquity: the thrill of discovery-the sense of origin-the knowledge that one is witnessing the birth of new artistic techniques rather than the tenth generation knockoffs of those techniques." -- Scott Katz, ustownhall

"This extraordinary volume, first in a series, is impressive in both content and sheer size. It's the same shape as the traditional newspaper comic page from its original era, making it humongous by current standards. At 12" x 16", you'll need a table or other flat surface to enjoy it, and it's a wonderful feeling to be totally taken in by the color pages filling your entire field of vision and beyond." -- Johanna Draper Carlson, Comics Worth Reading

"A perfect coffee table book--not one that you would put on your coffee table...but one big enough to be used as a coffee table." -- J. Caleb Mozzocco, Newsarama
