Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Comics, Comix & Graphic Novels is the first fully documented study to explore the graphic qualities of the comic book, and the development of the genre into a sophisticated and culturally revealing popular art form. The book traces the history of the comic from early cartoon-like woodcuts through to the graphic strips of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Organized thematically it explores the various genres of the comic book, including humour, adventure, girls' comics, underground and alternative. The careers of the creators of the best-known characters — from Superman and Tintin to Tank Girl — are revealed, as are the stories behind the much-loved comics such as The Beano and The Incredible Hulk.

Synopsis:

Encompassing traditions from the USA, Britain, Europe and Japan, this volume offers a comprehensive survey of comic art. The author examines the creators behind some of the best-known characters in modern fiction, such as Superman, Tank Girl, and Sid the Sexist.

Synopsis:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 237) and index.
