9780500290965: Comics: A Global History, 1968 to the Present

The first global history of comics around the world from the late 1960s to the present day

Comics, manga, bandes dessinées, fumetti, tebeo, historietas... no matter the name, they have been a powerful medium across four continents for decades. This is the history of comics around the world from the late 1960s to the dawn of the 21st century.

Comics is a richly illustrated narrative of extraordinary scope. Examples from all over the world include everything from Crumb and Kirby to RAW; from Metal Hurlant to Marjane Satrapi to nouvelle manga; from both the American mainstream and underground to the evolving and influential British scene. The images here are bright and colorful, dark and brooding, arresting and pleasant, all at the same time. An unprecedented collection includes around 260 expertly chosen illustrations, many reproduced in full-page format for more sophisticated analysis.

The authors, two uniquely positioned and knowledgeable authorities, are the first to write a broadly comprehensive history of this most accessible, democratic, and occasionally subversive modern popular art form, displaying an intimate familiarity with schools and styles, writers, artists, and companies across countries and generations. In showing us both post-apocalyptic dreamscapes and portraits of the everyday, Comics looks at this thirty-plus year period through a very unique lens. 289 illustrations in color and black-and-white

From the Back Cover:

Chronicling the last five decades of comics around the world--with around 290 illustrations drawn from comic books, manga, bandes dessinees, fumetti and historietas--Dan Mazur and Alexander Danner's Comics is groundbreaking in both its scope and level of detail. R. Crumb and Lynda Barry, Jack Kirby and Alan Moore, Moebius and Alberto Breccia, Yumiko Oshima and Osamu Tezuka--these are just a few of the hundreds of artists and writers who make Comics an essential new history, unprecedented in its global reach.

About the Author:

Dan Mazur is a cartoonist, teacher, journalist, editor, and screenwriter. Co-founder of the Boston Comics Roundtable, he has edited numerous indie comics anthologies while his articles on comics have appeared in the Boston Phoenix and the International Journal of Comic Art.
