Editorial Reviews


Besides efficiently translating the captions, Kunzle describes Doré's dozen comics and their cultural context with scholarly precision in an excellent introduction.

--Ray Olson, Booklist

"The twelve graphic narratives gathered in the volume published by the University Press of Mississippi reveal a true artist and the power of his blossoming imagination. . . . David Kunzle's book is precious on several grounds. First, because it brings together a scattered body of work and shows its historical significance. Second, because it makes available a series of translated and carefully annotated texts to Anglophone readers. . . . The surfer who browses through Doré's images will not experience the unquestionable benefits [found in this book]: a well-reasoned selection of works that are introduced and annotated with great competence and energy, not to mention humor."

--Philippe Kaenel, European Comic Art

"David Kunzle has given us a fabulous treasure in this new volume. It contains both Gustave Doré's vibrant, youthful comics (accompanied by Kunzle's wonderful English translation from the original French text) and a brilliant essay by Kunzle on Doré's comic strips. This book joins Kunzle's two recent volumes on Rodolphe Töpffer (also published by University Press of Mississippi), which provide the gold standard for knowledge about nineteenth-century comics. This new volume picks up where those two books left off by tracing a very important and exciting part of Töpffer's enormous legacy in comics. Together, these three works show indisputably that the comics art form has a long, inventive, and illustrious history in nineteenth-century Europe. Comics lovers and scholars will be absolutely delighted to read this new, landmark book."

--Mark McKinney, professor of French, Miami University (Ohio), and author of The Colonial Heritage of French Comics
