9780743267779: Chas Addams Happily Ever After: A Collection of Cartoons to Chill the Heart of Your Loved One

Charles Addams was renowned for his depictions of love (or lack thereof) in his cartoons. The passion of Morticia and Gomez Addams, the lonely desires of Fester, the numerous grim and ghastly fights between husband and wife -- all found their way into Addams's signature drawings.

Addams's concept of love was quite a bit different from the traditional idea of romance. Forget roses and chocolate, Addams will show you how to woo a mermaid or celebrate an anniversary on a desert island. Or how to keep your husband on a leash -- literally. Learn what to do when your prince stays a frog, even after you've kissed him.

Compiled from Addams's personal archive, many of these cartoons are previously unpublished gems, while others are Addams classics. The cartoons in Chas Addams Happily Ever After run the gamut from ecstatic love to disappointed affection to murderous obsession and demonstrate that love really does hurt.

About the Author :

Chas Addams was the creator of the "Addams Family" cartoons, which first appeared in The New Yorker and were the inspiration for the popular The Addams Family television show and movies. He has been honored with the Yale Humor Award (1954) and a Special Edgar Award for "Cartoonist of the Macabre" from the Mystery Writers of America. Addams died in 1988 in New York City.

From The Washington Post :

What kind of man would collect medieval armor? Perhaps one who wanted to be insulated from his own creations -- men, women and children often on the verge of dispatching one another. I speak of Charles (Chas) Addams, creator of the Addams Family, longtime cartoonist for the New Yorker, and possessor of an inexhaustibly mordant sense of humor. Among the drawings -- many of them previously unpublished -- collected in Happily Ever After (Simon & Schuster, $20) are such anti-Valentines as a middle-aged man standing near the edge of Echo Gorge, into which a woman's hat and purse are disappearing after their owner. The caption reads, in ever-diminishing letters, "You wouldn't dare ... you wouldn't dare ... you wouldn't dare." Perhaps Echo Gorge goes by more than one name. In another cartoon, a man goes up to a train-station ticket booth and, while his wife stands obliviously by, asks for "a round-trip and a one-way to Ausable Chasm." Not to worry, though. The book includes droves of cartoons in which it's the wife, not the husband, who's involved in spousicide. When it came to marital mayhem, Chas Addams could swing either way. -- Dennis Drabelle
