A glib, unserious and disappointing overview of British comics.,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Ultimate Book of British Comics (Hardcover)
It's clear, from his snotty tone, that Kibble-White regards this project as somewhat beneath him. Apart from the many omissions, there's a lazy casualness running through the book that almost taunts you for being interested in the subject. The book is badly laid out and designed, and very poorly illustrated - which is odd considering it's about comics. There's little warmth, little insight and hardly any interesting facts or anecdotes. It's basically a quick knock-off job that does a disservice to the people behind such a wonderful and fascinating aspect of British culture. Avoid.
