O’Malley’s misadventures. Bumbling yet endearing, Mr. O’Malley infrequently will get his magic to work―even while he consults his Fairy Godfather’s convenient Pocket advisor. the real magic of Barnaby is living in its canny mixture of delusion and satire, amplified by means of the understated beauty of Crockett Johnson’s fresh, spare paintings. In its mixture of Johnson’s sly wit and O’Malley’s amiable windbaggery, a child’s feeling of ask yourself and an adult’s wariness, hugely literate jokes and a willing eye for the ridiculous, Barnaby increased our experience of what comics can do.
