Speck is the ultimate altar boy, half holy, half hellion, well-intentioned but oh, so distractible. Some of us remember dealing with him, others of us remember being him.
Margaret Ahern spent a quarter century drawing the adventures of the never-aging Speck, being one of the few female cartoonists to take part in the Catholic cartoon explosion of the 1950s and one of the artists who stuck with the form the longest. This book collects the first two collections of her work (Speck the Altar Boy and Presenting… Speck the Altar Boy), both out of print for decades, into a single volume for the first time, with hundreds of prime Speck cartoons. Also available: AN ALTAR BOY NAMED ‘SPECK’, a collection of cartoons by Speck’s creator, W. R. “Tut” LeBlanc.
