Review

"King of the Comics: One Hundred Years of King Features Syndicate combines a historian’s love of the art form with a fan’s love of the strips themselves." –Mark Squirek, New York Journal of Book

About the Author

Dean Mullaney created The Library of American Comics in 2007. He has been an influential force in the comics field since 1978, when he published Sabre, the first graphic novel for the comics specialty market. His pioneering efforts, as founder and publisher of Eclipse Comics, brought many milestones to the field, including creator copyright ownership, the first line of Japanese manga in English translation (in 1988), and the first digitally-colored comic book. He was inducted in the Overstreet Hall of Fame in 2011. Dean lives in Florida with his wife Lorraine Turner.
