Item description for Professor Wexler- World Explorer: The Wacky Adventures of the World's Greatest Explorer by Charles Berlin...
From the pages of World Explorer comes this zany, wacky compilation of cartoons, pulp-era parodies, and comics featuring the never-ending saga of the intrepid Professor Wexler -- a bespectacled, unshaven, unabashed adventurer into the fringes of the unknown and weird. It includes all of the original cartoons, plus a new comic of the Professor and an introduction by World Explorer editor and Lost Cities author David Hatcher Childress.
With a pipe clenched in his teeth, the ever-resilient professor encounters everything from Bigfoot, UFOs, and the Loch Ness Monster to the dangerous jungles and deserts of the remote parts of the world. Professor Wexler is a Doc Savage-Indiana Jones character who lives on the edge of life, and one never knows what sort of predicament he will be in next. This book follows his early exploits which first appeared in 1998 in the pages of World Explorer Magazine and continues into his more mature later-day adventures.

If you like your humor in the FAR SIDE vein, you'll enjoy this wild collection of cartoons and short stories---Very Harvey Kurtzman-esque (50's MAD magazine artist)in places with the art. WARNING: You have to be up on the paranormal and cryptozoology to fully appreciate a bit of the humor. This helps make this volume unique.Hopefully, a movie is in the works! ~Peace
