Cover and sample pages from Sticks ‘N Stones ‘N Dinosaur Bones:

This first book in Enik `n Newland’s “Unhinged History” series is a ripping yarn – full of adventure and deceit – that brings to life the best-known public spat in all of Paleontology: the bitter rivalry between Edward Drinker Cope and Othniel Charles Marsh that became known as “The Bone Wars.” Lively and witty rhymes plus beautifully demented illustrations by G. F. Newland reveal how the paleontologists’ infamous rivalry began and how their mutual obsession with outdoing and ruining one another spun out of control.


Bambi Meets Godzilla (1969) - Marv Newland.

Coming in at number 38 in the book, The 50 Greatest Cartoons: As Selected by 1,000 Animation Professionals by Jerry Beck (1994), Bambi Meets Godzilla is a genuine classic in the annals of animation history for not only its absurdity, but for its genius simplicity.  

The piece is so beloved that it was actually added on to the beginning of The Return of Godzilla (1985) on a number of VHS releases.

This classic short (with sound) can be viewed here.
