Newspaper comics arrive in millions of homes each day and make families laugh out loud. They're not only funny - they also reflect their times. In this collection, cartoon authority Brian Walker has amassed more than a half-century of strips - more than 700 illustrations - including scores of rare examples provided by the artists themselves. Featured cartoonists include Walk Kelly ("Pogo"), Charles Schulz ("Peanuts"), Garry Trudeau ("Doonesbury"), Bill Watterson ("Calvin and Hobbes"), Scott Adams ("Dilbert") and Patrick McDonnell ("Mutts"), along with many more. Organised by decades, with biographical profiles and descriptions of different genres and themes, "The Comics Since 1945" is both comprehensive and graphically stunning.Biografía del autor:
