Out of print for over 50 years, D & Q has returned this classic to the shelves in a boffo hardcover edition. Skitzy offers readers of today a perfect snapshot of the 1950s. It is a minimalist, pen & ink pantomime graphic short story that concisely illustrates the American male of the time as being divided between his vital creativity and his domestic security. The only solution in the 1950s seemed to be the impossible one shown here: of becoming two different people. It took the upheavals of the 1960s, primarily the emergence of the modern feminist movement, to start us down the path towards a workable rapprochement of these once seemingly irreconcilable goals.
