1001 COMICS MINI-SITE

Even with 960 pages, I couldn't squeeze all the material I had into my book 1001 Comics You Must Read Before You Die. This mini-site is designed to supplement that book with updates, additional information and links... but obviously you'll still need a copy of the book!

Introduction | Reviewers | Have Your Say
Titles | Creators | Years | Countries | Genres | Updates

UPDATES:

The online database of 1001 Comics contains a basic listing for every featured book (ie title, creators, original publisher, country and year of first publication, reviewer and genre). Additionally the following entries have been supplemented with additional information, updates and images not found in the printed book. More updates will be added just as soon as I can!
