Comic Legend of William McGonagall
A Pictorial Story Based on the Life of the World's Worst Poet
Charles Nasmyth

8 1/2" x 12" • 48 pages • full-color comic illustrations throughout
ISBN 9781902407531 • hardback • $19.95

Created by Charles Nasmyth and with an introduction by Richard Demarco, Scotland's most influential advocate of contemporary art - The Comic Legend of William McGonagall is a part-satirical, part-factual collection which illustrates the legend and poetry of the much maligned Edinburgh-born Dundonian owing as much to The Broons and Oor Wullie comic-strip artist Dudley Watkins as it does to William Blake and the Surrealists.

Combining the absurd with elements of social satire and artistic parody, the illustrations, a series of 36 paintings, depict McGonagall in a range of roles and settings, from a romantic partner to Marilyn Monroe to an enemy of Hitler, providing a fascinating portrayal of the poet and his unconventional verse in a quite unique collection.
