About the Author

Milt Gross (1895-1953) was one of the most influential cartoonists of the first half of the 20th century. His first published comic, Phool Phan Phables, appeared in the New York Journal in 1915, though it was short-lived. After serving in World War I, Gross saw great success with an illustrated column, Gross Exaggerations, in the New York World. Many more successes would follow, including the strip collection Nize Baby in 1926, Count Screwloose from Tooloose in 1929, and his masterpiece, the wordless novel He Done Her Wrong, in 1930. In addition to his cartooning, Gross was also successfull in scriptwriting and radio.
