Before there was Google the search engine, there was "Barney Google", with the goo-goo-googly eyes! This lovable comic strip character was brilliantly drawn in absorbing and hilarious stories by master draftsman Billy DeBeck. Barney gambled, hung with high - toned women and hillbillies, and played the horses! This novel-length, thrilling, and laugh - packed story was about Google's race horse Spark plug and delighted a nation in the 1920s as they will you. Featuring a revealing introduction by renowned comics historian Craig Yoe, this strikingly designed hardbound book collects the most famous acclaimed adventures of "Barney Google", complete with rare, unpublished art, photos, and ephemera in glorious color. As with the entire line of Yoe Books, the reproduction techniques employed strive to preserve the look and feel of expensive vintage comics. Painstakingly remastered, enjoy the closest possible recreation of reading these comics when first released.
