A Review By: Tim Bishop,

Tim Bishop posted the following review on on 6 October 2011.

Beautiful, phonebook-sized publication. A reference book for the best and most important comics of the last century.

Even though it’s a heavy, dip-in-and-out-of, coffee-table book I still find it a bit of a page turner - every review is written very well and gives the relevant info you’d want on each comic, re style, genre, target audience etc.

It also serves as a history book, detailing the books in chronological order of publishing date which makes for very interesting reading.

The reviewers provide a bit of cultural context for some the older or more obscure international books too, valuable info when assessing further interest.
