Overview


Loverboy is the risqué, romantic escapade story of a very short, blue-eyed, confirmed bachelor, who adores tall, voluptuous women. The double-breasted suit wearing man-about-town seeks psychiatric insight to his tendencies in this humorous, intimate, and sometimes poignant, new graphic novel by award winning Dondi cartoonist, Irwin Hasen. Toward the end of the story, we find that Loverboy is, in fact, Hasen himself and the book segues into an entertaining biography of the noted cartoonist whose career spans from the birth of the comic book; to work for DC, All-American, Sheldon Mayer and M.C. Gaines, including Catman, Green Lantern, Wonder Woman, The Flash, All-Star Comics; to his own creation, with Batman co-creator Bill Finger, Wildcat; to mentoring comics and animation legend, Alex Toth; to creating the Dondi newspaper strip with writer Gus Edson; and the1961 Dondi film staring David Janssen, Patti Page, and a cameo by Hasen as a police sketch artist. Loverboy is filled throughout with Irwin Hasen's famous humor.
