From Booklist:

Oversized coffee-table showcases of vintage comic books are no longer a rarity, but two things make this one noteworthy. Much of the artwork is reproduced from original pen-and-ink drawings rather than the cheaply published comics themselves, and Herman's knowledgeable text provides perceptive insights into the artists' work. Herman sets the stage with chapters on early newspaper strips and comic books, then focuses on the second generation of comic-book creators, who worked during what fans call the "Silver Age"--roughly, the 1950s and 1960s--when the strips, particularly the artwork, achieved greater sophistication than is seen in the crude, World War II-era comics. Herman covers western and war comics, the acclaimed EC line, and the superhero revival of the 1960s. He pays tribute to the best-known artists, such as Jack Kirby and Gil Kane; praises the less-renowned, equally deserving likes of Alex Toth and Dan Barry; and nods appreciatively to a host of talented journeymen. While vividly presented artwork will draw casual comics readers, hardcore buffs will prize Herman's authoritative commentary. Gordon Flagg
