Newspaper comics arrive in millions of homes each day and make families laugh out loud. They're not only funny but 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 Richard Felton Outcault ( Buster Brown), George Herriman ( Krazy Kat), Chester Gould ( Dick Tracy), ChicYoung ( Blondie), Walt Kelly ( Pogo), Charles Schulz ( Peanuts), Garry Trudeau ( Doonesbury), Bill Watterson ( Calvin and Hobbes), Scott Adams ( Dilbert), and Patrick McDonnell ( Mutts), along with many more. Organized by decade, with biographical profiles and descriptions of different genres and themes, The Comics is both comprehensive and graphically stunning. This humorous compendium is a classic survey of American comics from spanning from pre-war American newspaper comics strips, to those currently in print. The Comics Since 1945 was first published in 2002 and quickly become an important guide to American comics. Due to the success of the first volume, we followed up with The Comics Before 1945 published in 2004. Combined, the two books have sold nearly 30,000 copies.Biografía del autor:
