by Hank Ketcham
This second volume of Hank Ketcham's Complete Dennis the Menac e publishes every single panel strip from 1953 and 1954 in one handsome and thick little hardcover volume resembling a Big Little Book on steroids. Dennis is relatively unusual among long-lived strips in that after its first couple of years, it achieved its definitive look. And although Ketcham had not yet added any of Dennis's friends (such as Margaret and Joey), an elderly neighboring couple begins to appear now and again. Poor George and Martha Wilson, little do they realize what's in store for them! Introductory essay by R.C. Harvey.

Long before there was Calvin & Hobbes - There was, of course, Dennis the Menace, who (next to Charlie Brown) was the most popular "cartoon" kid in the world of the newspaper comic-strip.

Created by cartoonist, Hank Ketcham - Dennis the Menace (the blond, freckle-faced, rugrat of 5 who lived on Pine Street) made his official debut into the newspaper's comic section in 1951.

Appearing as a single-panel strip - Dennis the Menace became so popular that he eventually appeared in more than 16 newspapers all across the American nation, and beyond.

This hefty volume contains over 1000 Dennis the Menace cartoons from the years of 1953 & 1954.

*Note* - Born in 1920 - Cartoonist, Hank Ketcham continued to draw the Dennis the Menace comic-strip right up until 1994..... In 2001 - Ketcham (81 at the time) died from heart failure.
