Herman Classics, Vol. 3 Paperback – September 1, 2005
by Jim Unger (Author)
Syndicated in more than 800 newspapers across North America — and around the globe — Herman is recognized as one of the funniest comics of the past two decades. With an economy of line and a wry, nonchalant humour, this popular strip reveals a hilarious cast of bandaged hospital staff, hapless criminals, zealous sales clerks, and frustrated cavemen. This third volume is a premium quality collector’s edition. It contains more than 500 coloured versions of the funniest Herman comics ever. Fifty full-page Sunday spreads have been colourized for this volume only. The edition also contains comments and insights from the award-winning cartoonist.

Classic humour, Great delivery!

Unger’s work continues to illicit laughs years after his first cartoons were published. A keen eye for the every day and every man humour around us, he strikes at the heart of what amuses us, the ordinary presented ridiculously, or the irritating presented with great style and understatement. And not a page is turned without a chuckle or a gut busting laugh. If you’ve been a fan, as I have been for many years, or are new to Unger, the Classics Volume 3 will delight, entertain, and leave you with more than a few tears of laughter rolling down your cheeks. If you’re new to Unger pick up Classics Volume 3 and you’ll find yourself returning for previous volumes. Every fan of the absurd and ridiculous should have a library of Unger to recharge your humour batteries when they’re running low. Thanks Jim for the laughs.
