    This is a big, beautiful, richly illustrated book that covers a lot of territory—the history and development of comic books and graphic novels. It attempts to cover the entire field, characters, artists, writers, and give at least a basic understanding of the history. Unfortunately, as it says on the cover, "Nearly 400 BIG pages!", i.e., it's not quite four hundred pages. That's not enough space for in-depth treatment; it's made a bit more cramped by those beautiful illustrations (which, I must This is a big, beautiful, richly illustrated book that covers a lot of territory—the history and development of comic books and graphic novels.

That's not enough space for in-depth treatment; it's made a bit more cramped by those beautiful illustrations (which, I must say, it would be a shame to lose.). The articles are mostly short, and characters one would have thought important enough for their own entries are reduced to mentions in broader entries. (Bugs Bunny, for instance, is barely mention in the "Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies" entry.) This is a good, fun book nevertheless, but possibly a better choice for the reader just getting seriously interested in comics, than for the established fan who already has an in-depth knowledge of the field.

    This is a large, very well-produced over-view of the graphic field and the history of modern comics. It has many color reproductions of covers and pages of comics both famous and somewhat obscure. It has a bigger-than-life comics feel to it, both in Goulart's enthusiasm for his subject, and in the visual design and layout. It's great for either leafing through randomly, or researching a particular comic. Lots of fun! This is a large, very well-produced over-view of the graphic field and the history of modern comics.
