Polly debuted in 1912 as one of the first "pretty girl" strips, but it was in 1925 that Sterrett's magnificent Sunday pages entered their peak period, as he developed a style with distinctive surreal perspectives, abstract backgrounds, and bold, vibrant use of color. Art Spiegelman has written, "Polly and Her Pals is a glorious composition... a happy pop synthesis of Art Deco, Futurism, Surrealism, Dada, and Pure Cartoon." Polly and Her Pals: Complete Sunday Comics, 1925-1927 reproduces every one of Cliff Sterrett's dynamic full-color Sunday pages from 1925 to 1927 in a large 12" x 16" format so that it can be fully appreciated. The pages also include Sterrett's topper strips, Damon and Pythias and Dot and Dash. Polly Perkins is young, blonde, and the apple of many a young man's eye. Yet while Polly is out on the town or frolicking at the beach, it's her family that creates all the hubbub! Sensible Maw Perkins can never keep her husband Paw out of trouble, and towed along in Paw's wake are Polly's cousin Ashur; Neewah, the family's tart-tongued Asian retainer; and Paw's cat, Kitty, the pantomime wonder of the comic strip world.
