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

Customer Reviews:

Good Addams, bad edition

By Silver "Silver" - April 30, 2009

First, a little information for those disappointed by how few 'Addams Family' cartoons there are. The Charles Addams cartoons came first. The television show was based on a group of characters that he used in more than one of his cartoons. 'Gomez' and 'Morticia' for instance, did generally appear together, or with 'Pugsly' and 'Wednesday'. However, I don't believe the character who became 'Fester' was ever seen with the family. And they were never anything like a main focus of his cartoons.

This edition (for Kindle) is actually a bad idea, and I returned my copy almost immediately after purchasing it. It is impossible, in far too many of the cartoons, too see the subtle details that make Addams cartoons the gloriously horrifying moment outside of time that they truly are. The same problem exists in the paperback editions. To truly enjoy Addams, one should see the full-sized cartoons. Just remember, if an Addams cartoon leaves you scratching your head wondering... read more

Awesome book

By James D. Crabtree "Doc Crabtree" - December 25, 2010

Loved this collection of Addams cartoons. I have seen most of the previously-published cartoons but never tire of Addams material. Better still, the book includes several unpublished cartoons which gives you some idea into Charles Addams' thought processes. The best part is, even the ideas Addams felt were not good enough to develop are funnier than a lot of the humor you see published nowadays. Well worth getting if you're a fan!

Chas Addams - without the family

By Paul Batters "Retro Addict" - June 22, 2009

The vast majority of us will know Chas Addams for reasons other than his cartoons published in newspapers and journals such as The New Yorker. You will be disappointed if that's what you are looking for. As previous reviews have stated, some are sketches and some perhaps lose their impact in these times.

But I still found them amusing, certainly exhibiting the dark, morbid humour he was known for. The theme was common enough - marriage, love and the trappings of relationships. Disturbing - not really.

At any rate, I was not disappointed with my purchase but would have liked complete cartoons rather than sketches and perhaps some more in terms of quantity.
