Stephen King recommended book. Noted as "important to the genre we have been discussing" from Danse Macabre, published in 1981.

i'm very into cartoons moreso than comics. I do like comics (sequential art to be nerdily precise), it's just that my heart still belongs to the one panel gag geniuses like gahan w., charles adams, george price, george booth, larson, &cet. gahan is the beez kneez. ghastly humor is my poison.
