A Review By: BBC Collective

The following review appeared in #227 of the BBC Collective, the online interactive culture magazine, as part of an interview/feature on the history of comics.

As well as communicating a bottomless enthusiasm for comic book culture in all its forms around the world, Gravett and Stanbury’s book offers a valuable account of the British scene, from Gillray and Cruikshank to today’s cult heroes (and possibly tomorrow’s mainstream stars), such as Ben Dickson and Bryan Talbot. There have been some ups and downs, but we’re nowhere near the writing (and panel art) being on the wall for comic books just yet.
