    made me realize that for older comics i prefer political ones. but i wish there was more than two pages on black comics, could have at least included Oliver Harrington. Art Young too for a taste of socialist comics.

    It's resourceful and well curated but the color restoration is so bad. It's resourceful and well curated but the color restoration is so bad.

    What a wonderful book. I learned so much about the history of early comics. It's a keeper. What a wonderful book. I learned so much about the history of early comics. It's a keeper.

    Good writing and overview of the strips, but the included comics are random and don't really give you a good flavor for the strip. Nothing will ever top the Smithsonian Collection book.
