The Big Book of Wag!
For over a decade (1991-2004), Joe Ollmann has made his way through the indy comics scene with Wag!, his micro-books of fictions and comics. Influenced by artists such as Ben Katchor, Edgar Allen Poe, Ralph Steadman and Edward Gorey, Ollmann draws the inhabitants of his world with remarkable craft and an eye for detail, making each character unforgettable. The Big Book of Wag! is a large format compilation filled with hilarious, poignant, and eclectic tales in Ollmann’s trademark warts-and-all style.
“Joe Ollmann’s the only cartoonist I know who makes me think I’m dealing with the book scene, whose work makes me think I’m holding part of the Great Literary Tradition. And did I mention that his comics are as funny as hell?” — David Collier
“An infectious amalgam of disarming style and pointed imagination.” — HOUR
