What other items do customers buy after viewing this item?
“A highly entertaining book that will resonate with gamers and nongamers alike. Grades 9 and up.”—School Library Journal
“Full of interesting information and insight.”—Kirkus
"[A] thorough, entertainingly illustrated account of an often overlooked corner of pop-culture history."
—Peter Blenski, Booklist
“The idea of telling the history of video games in a graphic novel is a radically inventive idea, and Jonathan Hennessey and his team have done an amazing job of it. It is chock full of fascinating stories about the people who laid the foundation for the technologies we take for granted today. I wish my history textbooks from high school had been this cool. I highly recommend this book!” —Warren Davis, designer/programmer of Q*Bert
“The Comic Book Story of Video Games is fun, smart, and informative, all at the same time. Hennessey manages to be scholarly, too, as he blends forty years of sources, putting mysteries in context and settling controversies. The illustrations by Jack McGowan are terrific and appear lively enough to spring from the page.” —Dona Bailey, Atari programmer of Centipede

My only criticism is that it speeds up a little too quickly at the end, and I’d enjoy hearing more modern stories as well .. a second volume please!
Anche la narrazione non è sempre ripercorribile. Cosa c'entra il suicidio di Hitler con la storia dei videogiochi?? Questo fumetto di sicuro non entrerà nella mia collezione di libri sulla storia dei videogiochi.
È piu che evidente che il tutto è stato messo insieme di gran fretta e buttato sul mercato forse solo per poter dire : "Primo!!"
La casa editrice è la TEN SPEED PRESS.... "TEN SPEED" il nome sembra essere stato programma...
Porque podras identificar a los creadores de atari, sega, y como se involucraban en poder desarrollar sus juegos desde un punto de vista mas entretenido , recomendable.
I bought the Kindle version. It looks great on a tablet computer.
