From Booklist:

Updating a comprehensive reference classic (originally published in 1976), this second edition adds some 200 new entries to the original 1,200 as well as revising 600 entries that appeared in the first edition. A large proportion of the new entries comes from areas of the world that were underrepresented in the 1976 edition: Asia, Africa, and Eastern Europe. The purpose is the same as that stated in the foreword to the first edition: "to cover the entire field of comic art in all of its aspects--artistic, cultural, sociological and commercial--on a global scale." The book's format remains largely unchanged, even though the content has been thoroughly revised.

The 31-page essay on the history of comics that focused on the U.S. in the previous edition has been updated and broadened to include coverage from all over the world. This is followed by a revised world chronology of comic art, updated through 1997, and an unchanged extended essay analyzing comics as art.

The main body of the work consists of the alphabetized entries of comic strips and the creators and producers of comics. On almost every page, Horn has inserted black-and-white relevant examples of comic strips; and in this edition, he has substituted newer or more illustrative examples of comic art. An appealing and thoroughly revised 80-page section of color comic art reproduction appears in volume 3. Revisions and expansions of other essays by the book's contributors (such as a history of newspaper syndication), a glossary, a bibliography, and several appendixes (including the Code of the Comics Magazine Association of America and the "official facsimile of excerpts from the record of the U.S. Senate Subcommittee of the Committee on the Judiciary to Investigate Juvenile Delinquency" in 1954) follow the main entries.

The three indexes have been expanded to seven, allowing readers to access information by proper name, title, media, contributors' names, geographical location, illustrations in the book, and general subject.

Those libraries with the first edition of The World Encyclopedia of Comics should replace it with this revised version. Other academic libraries, some high-school libraries, and all but the smallest public libraries should also purchase this reference bible on a fascinating subject.
