Description
Did you ever wonder how to stop brooding, if your ears are protruding? Or how to indulge yourself and snore, without being a bore? Or something a bit more challenging, like how to boot a fly off your snoot—or how not to reel on a banana peel? Cartooning master Basil Wolverton solved these conundrums and many more in "The Culture Corner," a monthly comic strip that ran from 1945–1952 in Fawcett's Whiz Comics, (also the home of Captain Marvel). Through his bald and bearded fictional host Croucher K. Conk, Wolverton would posit the problem and offer a unique solution over seven or eight panels, each one a miniature masterpiece of visual humor and wacky wordplay. This glorious little book collects these 60 strips for the first time, reproduced in full size and in color, and accompanied by Wolverton's pencil sketches.

"Like a Bizarro Dr. Seuss, Wolverton packs each 'Culture Corner' with goofy, rhyming advice.... While silly and inconsequential, these strips revel in the subversive, surrealist glee that would develop more fully in Wolverton's later output for Mad and others, a style that would help unlock the inner cretin inside everyone from Robert Crumb to Peter Bagge."—The Onion A.V. Club
