Review by

Reading the history of each family member of the Addams clan is fascinating, but the real stand-out feature of this book are of course the never-before published cartoons. Given that the book's intention us to present the evolution of the family members, the one thing I would have really appreciated would have been if the cartoons for each family member had been in any semblance of a chronological order. Failing that, having the original publication date on the same page as the cartoon would have been appreciated, instead of being forced to flip to the back of the book. I'm also uncertain as to whether the dates listed for publication in books was the first publication of that cartoon, or a reprinting.I also found the font choice for the cartoon captions slightly off-putting, and one cartoon that has an italicized word in my original book didn't in this book.But those are minor quibbles, as clearly the real enjoyment comes from the cartoons themselves, which are excellent.
