A sumptuous combination of Brian Walker's two comic strip references, "the comics before 1945" and "the comics after 1945". Walker is a better comic historian than comic strip creator; this is one of the better illustrated and annotated comic strip references I've seen. The preponderance here is toward the examples of comic strip art. The text is less comprehensive than you'd expect for a book this size (668 pages and about 13" high), but that's fine. It's nicely organized, and I've plenty of other references that are heavy on the text. A nice basic reference for the budding comic strip historian. ( )
