Danny Fingeroth is an American comic book writer and editor. He currently edits Write Now!, a magazine about the craft of writing, for TwoMorrows Publishing. His latest book is The Rough Guide to Graphic Novels, which looks at the medium’s history, details sixty “must-read” graphic novels, profiles the movement’s legends and more. The following review appeared in The Rough Guide To Graphic Novels.
Judge Dredd, Tank Girl, Modesty Blaise and other creations from the minds of great Brit masters are covered in this colourful compendium. It includes everything from comic strips to graphic novels in chapters divided into thematic categories - schooldays, science fiction, cartoon creatures and so on. The small print in reproduced panels can be hard to read - but the multitude of graphics make up for it.
