Maurice Horn's indispensable reference work remains essential even in our instant data-saturated Internet age. Countless pieces of comic book history remain buried inside this massive, oversized 790 page tome that have yet to make it online. Even though it was updated in 1998 as a multi-volume edition, the original remains fascinating reading some 40 years after its publication. Littered with black and white illustrations and smart, concise entries, The World Encyclopedia of Comics remains an essential work for comic book scholars and historians. ( )

True to its title, this is an encyclopedia of comics throughout the world, although the emphasis is on American strips. Richly detailed in the manner of an encyclopedia; minimal illustrations, except for a section of color Sunday strips (reproduction a little lacking in quality). A fine reference work. ( )

Comprehensive listings of every major character and creator working in the industry up until publication. Very informative. ( )
