Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

The definitive history of American newspaper comics. 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.

Format: Hardcover
"Bad history. Bad scholarship. And, even, bad criticism. ... But Horn's book is clearly not supposed to be a scholarly enterprise. Rather, it is a bald-faced attempt to cash in on the Centennial: its commercial value was clearly more important to its editor and its publisher than any historical or referential worth."

-review by Robert Harvey in May 1997 issue of INKS, a scholarly journal or cartoon and comic art studies.

Buy Brian Walker, Ron Goulart, Robert Harvey, or Rick Marschall's books all of which are better than this work. If you have to buy something by Horn get The World Encyclopedia of Cartoons which has the benefit of Rick Marschall's contributions.

Format: Hardcover
As I Said, this book is'nt really bad for looking up comic strips you've heard mentioned someplace, but it really needed more illustrations and many facts are wrong in the articles that I knew were wrong.. There are probably more, but I wouldn't know about most...
