Book Review: The Glamor Girls of Don Flowers

The Glamor Girls of Don Flowers

I must say that the gags here aren't really my type. Probably because they are a bit dated and almost impossible to relate to. That's not to say that they are bad, it's just that they probably would appeal readers who used to read these comics. After a while, the jokes start to get monotonous.

Gags aside, the drawings of these glamor girls are fantastic. I love fluid lines that create the curvaceous, highly stylised, yet elegant ladies. If you study the cartoons closely, you'll realised that these girls are proud too. Most of the time, they are looking up — jawline horizontal — and standing taut. Sometimes, no outlines are drawn with form only suggested through the clever use of black.

It's recommended only if you like the art.
