About this title

Synopsis:

Get a feel for the Golden Age of comics with this sequel to the bestselling "All in Color for a Dime". Full of facts about America's favorite reading matter, here is an entertaining excursion into the world of comics. 16 page color section.

From Library Journal:

Like Thompson and Lupoff's 1970 volume All in Color for a Dime, this 1973 follow-up offers a nostalgic look at the comic book in America. With many of the vintage characters still in action today, this illustrated history should be popular.
