*The* reference book for the best comics.,
This review is from: 1001 Comic Books: You Must Read Before You Die (Paperback)Beautiful, phonebook-sized publication. A reference book for the best and most important comics of the last century.
Even though it's a heavy, dip-in-and-out-of, coffee-table book I still find it a bit of a page turner - every review is written very well and gives the relevant info you'd want on each comic, re style, genre, target audience etc.
It also serves as a history book, detailing the books in chronological order of publishing date which makes for very interesting reading.
The reviewers provide a bit of cultural context for some the older or more obscure international books too, valuable info when assessing further interest.
