Stan's new book

From 1974 to 1995, in the pages of The Village Voice, cartoonist Stan Mack’s “Real Life Funnies” chronicled the everyday, the extraordinary, and the downright outlandish lives
of New Yorkers—with every story told entirely in the subjects’ own words. New Yorkers (and New Yorkers-at-heart) ate it up. For the first time, a comprehensive collection of those comic strips has been included in one volume,
Stan Mack’s Real Life Funnies, from Fantagraphics.

"Wow. You can’t make this stuff up. That’s what I remember thinking the first time I read Stan Mack’s Real Life Funnies. Mack’s comic strip brilliantly captured the wacky contradictions of the city I fell in love with in 1977, the bold beauty and the seedy underbelly, the cruelty and compassion and indifference of a place where anything could happen."


—Jeannette Walls,
author of The Glass Castle
