Encyclopedic in scope, richly illustrated in high resolution on very high-quality paper, and featuring A to Z coverage of every significant comic in the past 100 years. It’s also a far bigger book than an on-screen image would lead you to believe. Very highly recommended to comics fans–and serious students of art history as well. Copiously illustrated, comprehensive encyclopedia of all the great daily and Sunday newspaper comics and their creators. This spectacular volume, edited by a highly respected international authority, presents the evolution and history of the comics and features all of America’s favorite strips: Blondie, Peanuts, Prince Valiant, Dick Tracy, Beetle Bailey, and many more. 64 pages of color comics and 300 black-and-white strips.
