Keith Dallas does a fantastic job of contextualizing the development of the comics art form with the changing comics business/industry. Although I felt quite knowledgable about comics history (and the 1980s in particular, as I really developed my collection then), I had forgotten many details, the actual timing of concurrent events. Dallas' writing is clear and engaging, and he draws from sources (both written and pictorial) that are quite difficult to find. Great job!

The book was interesting. On the quality of the book, I'd give this five stars. Substantively, though, there was one flaw -- the authors cover a year at a time, and sometimes told part of a story in one chapter and finished the story in a later chapter, with no attempt to cross-reference the two.

However, my biggest complaint was with the durability of the packaging. The title was written in a nice gold-colored lettering on the book's spine and, after I carried the book around, reading a chapter at a time over a number of days, the printing wore off. Had I not been carrying the book while traveling and missed the end of the return period, this is a serious enough flaw that I would have exchanged it. So, one star for the packaging.

The first volume of this (the 60s pt 1) was a very nice book. This one was poorly glued in the spine, so that the spine separated from the cover upon opening it. The only thing holding it in place were the end papers.
The second copy I got after returning the first one was not much better. The 60s volume had a nice square spine, this one the less sturdy curved one.
For a series of books like this--the info inside is outstanding--they should not cheap out on the production.

If you grew up during the heyday of the X-men, the birth of the New Teen Titans, and the endless Crisis on Infinite Earths/Secret Wars events, you'll love this book. Each page tugs at the nostalgia heartstrings with art and behind-the-scenes stories covering not only the changes in the big two publishers, but also those first green shoots of the modern indie comic movement (Comico, First Comics, etc.). Hands down my favorite comic-related book to date.

This is the 5th in the series that I've read -- previous include American Comic Book Chronicles the 1950s, 1960s (2) & 1970s -- & I found it very informative & an easy read. Looks like the author ran into a time crunch since several of the later chapters were written by others, but overall the prose is clear & concise, if not particularly flashy. My one complaint is that the binding seems a little weak & I can see it giving way after only a few readings.

I had been a comic book fan/collector ever since I was a kid, however during the 80's i
stopped getting comic books. I started up in 1990 again when I found out that there
was such a thing as comic book shops !! In the 10 years I was out of comics a lot of
things happened---new characters, new titles, new writers and artists and among
other things, the FLASH was dead and BATMAN had become more darker.
This book tells me what all I missed about the 80's decade ( which was a lot ) and
the photos are just amazing. I can't recommend this book and the silver age book
1960-1964 enough. Buy both of them. I can't wait for the 1950's book that will be
out in a few months.
