Charles Addams was renowned for his depictions of love (or lack thereof) in his cartoons. The passion of Morticia and Gomez Addams, the lonely desires of Fester, the numerous grim and ghastly fights between husband and wife -- all found their way into Addams's signature drawings.Addams's concept of love was quite a bit different from the traditional idea of romance. Forget roses and chocolate, Addams will show you how to woo a mermaid or celebrate an anniversary on a desert island. Or how to keep your husband on a leash -- literally. Learn what to do when your prince stays a frog, even after you've kissed him.Compiled from Addams's personal archive, many of these cartoons are previously unpublished gems, while others are Addams classics. The cartoons inChas Addams Happily Ever Afterrun the gamut from ecstatic love to disappointed affection to murderous obsession and demonstrate that love really does hurt.

I enjoyed looking at some of Charles Addams' cartoons after seeing a performance of The Addams Family at the Ordway Music Theater. I had forgotten how wacky and funny they are!

Chas Addams is the grand grand master of the macabre cartoon, but this is not his best work. Not that it is not good. It is, but not his macabre best, this is mostly just gruesome based on the old M&M theme: Marriage & Murder. And macabre is a much much finer art than gruesome.
