Customer Review

on 13 April 2008
To detail every single British comic since the 1930s would have required a huge book that would have been more like an encyclopaedia. This book is not an encyclopaedia, it instead gives a narrative on all the notable comic books that helped shape the British comics industry, and as such is very thorough and informative. Of particular interest is the way once popular comics suddenly got merged and re-merged with other titles as sales started to decline and the comic market got smaller and smaller, until even famous titles like Buster and Whizzer and Chips eventually had to throw in the towel. It doesn't make for a very optimistic appraisal of the British comic industry when you see the huge amount of once-famous comics that are now no longer published, but as an account of the contribution many of these comics made to popular culture it is a very interesting read.
