5.0 out of 5 starsA very interesting book30 Sep 2013
By John H. Spruhan - Published on Amazon.com
This book traces the development of the American comic book up to the explosion of superhero comics in the late 30's. The author was a British expert, and contrasts this development to that in the UK. It gave me a new perspective on the subject, so I would highly recommend it.
5.0 out of 5 starsAmerican Comic Strip Collections 1884-19392 Feb 2010
By John Karwin - Published on Amazon.com
Exhaustive catalog of the hundreds of books which reprinted early newspaper comic strips. These are mostly hardcover books from which the term "comic book" actually emerged. Gifford is readable, complete, and indispensable for serious researchers into comic book history. Not illustrated.
