Book Description:

Comic books have captivated readers since the Famous Funnies of 1930s and have remained popular ever since, even through the censorious 1950s when they were considered to be corrupting the nation's youth. But with the advent of the graphic novel in the late 1970s—such as Will Eisner's early classic, A Contract with God—this form of reading entertainment truly came of age as a revealing literature of our culture.

About the Author:

M. Keith Booker is the James E. and Ellen Wadley Roper Professor of English at the University of Arkansas, Fayetteville, AR, where he also serves as director of the program in comparative literature and cultural studies.
