The Comics: The Complete Collection

Product Description
Brian Walker’s two comprehensive guides to American comics, The Comics Before 1945 and The Comics Since 1945, are combined here in one beautifully designed omnibus edition, The Comics: The Complete Collection. Cartoon authority Brian Walker has amassed over a century of strips-more than 1,300 images-including rare examples provided by the artists themselves. Featured cartoonists include George Herriman (Krazy Kat), Walt Kelly (Pogo), Charles Schulz (Peanuts), Bill Watterson (Calvin and Hobbes), Scott Adams (Dilbert), Patrick McDonnell (Mutts), and many more. Organized by decade, with biographical profiles and analysis of the different genres, The Comics is a graphically stunning, and terrifically priced survey of American newspaper comics. Praise for The Comics: “The strips . . . are beautifully reproduced and carefully annotated.” -The New York Times “As a detailed and informed one-volume history of the newspaper comics, Walker’s The Comics is the best book we have.” -PW Comics Week
