What an ego! Mort Walker does not need me to be his fan--he already has that covered. Still, this is a fun book that is full of reprinted strips and other bits. I wish it had more facts on merchandising, more on his characters in other media, and less about how awesome Mort Walker is--these make the book less that it might be. Still, this is a fun, fun book.
