The trend of reprinting my favorite comics in chronological order in book format has been a boon to me. Every morning as a kid growing up, I would go downstairs and have cereal for breakfast and read the comics. These books have allowed me to take a step back in time and view them again, as if for the first time (although I try not to splash milk on the books). The newest addition to my collection is Hagar the Horrible: The Epic Chronicles: The Dailies 1974-1975, which as the name suggests compiles the dailies from this most funny of Viking strips into a high quality book. That looks just like this…
Not only is the book hours of comic entertainment, collecting 428 daily Hagar strips from 19/6/74–9/11/1975, it also features a foreword by Sergio Aragones (Groo) with an exclusive Aragones drawing of Hagar, and an introduction by Brian Walker.
I really wished they could have included the Sunday comics in this book, but I imagine, those will be done as a separate book if this one sells well and i hope it does. Because I am very looking forward to picking up the Dailies from 1976-1977.
