Editorial Reviews


Comics journalism is mostly an oxymoron, but The Comics Journal, on the eve of its 300th issue, is a scholarly, intellectual publication.... [F]or intelligent discussion of current and past graphic storytelling and its creators (the current issue features an incredible story of an ahead-of-its-time genre-spanning anthology from the seventies that was never published), this is indeed an oasis of comics journalism. (Richard Pachter - The Miami Herald)

Fantagraphics has also just put out a new issue of The Comics Journal #299, which has an incredible narrative by lawyer-outsider art-underground advocate Bob Levin ... Levin is the writer of several books on the struggle of comics and the counter-culture and transgressive fringes, and because of him #299 of TCJ is the book about comic art to buy this year. (Chris Estey - KEXP-FM, Seattle)

[I] love it, especially the absolutely essential Bob Levin cover article. (Alan David Doane - Comic Book Galaxy)

Here’s a rare treat for Fleischer Studio fans―or anyone interested in clever, cartoon story-telling: the latest issue of The Comics Journal, #299, features a complete reprint of Myron Waldman’s 1943 “graphic novel”, Eve. (Cartoon Brew)
