Football's Comic Book Heroes: Celebrating the Grea&hellip by Adam Riches

Combining two of my favorite subjects into one finely assembled book was a dead cert for 5 stars for me. I have been an avid collector and reader of comic books for decades, and an ardent fanatic of the beautiful game ever since I can remember.

With ironic repartee, Lefkowitz notes the adoption of European standards and definitions of cultural greatness by Afrocentric scholars in the invention of this imaginary past. The inclusion of Masonic images and lore into the equation seems forced and unnecessary in addition to slowing down the pace of the book's entreaty to truth an accuracy.
