What I Learned From Jackie Robinson: A Teammate’s Reflections On and Off the Field Hardcover
AN INTIMATE LOOK AT JACKIE ROBINSON’S FIGHT FOR EQUALITY, FROM FORMER TEAMMATE AND LONGTIME FRIEND CARL ERSKINE
“Jackie needed to quell his anger the first couple of years, a task which only someone of this inner strength and vision could have coped with at that moment. When I reflect and wonder what it must have been like for a man who should have been at the happiest of moments in his life, to still have to deal with racial indignities on a daily basis, it is mind-boggling. Most mortal men would have cracked.”–Carl Erskine, from the book

Willard Mullin’s Golden Age Of Baseball Drawings 1934-1972 Hardcover –
This first-ever retrospective of the dean of American sports cartooning “stars” baseball greats such as Joe DiMaggio, Yogi Berra, Lou Gehrig, and many others.
In Fantagraphics’ ceaseless effort to rediscover every world-class cartoonist in the history of the medium, we turn your attention to a neglected part of the art form―sports cartooning―and to its greatest practitioner―Willard Mullin. The years 1930-1970 were the Golden Age of both American sports and American comic strips, when giants strode their respective fields―Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, and Hank Aaron in one, George (Krazy Kat) Herriman, Milton (Steve Canyon) Caniff, Walt (Pogo) Kelly in the other―and Mullin was there, straddling both fields, recording every major player and event in the mid-20th-century history of baseball.
