About this title

From School Library Journal:

Gr 9 Up-From ancient graffiti to South Park, this belated update (Chelsea, 1982; o.p.) encompasses general histories of political, panel, and animated cartoons, plus detailed biographies of their creators and a lengthy appended treatise on the humor magazines Puck, Judge, and Life. The work is a combination of alphabetical entries and subject essays; about half are either new or revised to mid-1998, and the coverage, supported by a separate geographical index, is broadly international. A vast number of often poorly reproduced black-and-white and full-color illustrations are also included. Despite a few omissions-neither James Stevenson nor the New Yorker rate entries, Charles Schulz is mentioned only in connection with the animated "Peanuts," and the glossary does not include cartooning jargon-this, along with its companion, The World Encyclopedia of Comics (Chelsea, 1998), makes an entertaining browsing item as well as a uniquely rewarding reference tool for art, history, and popular-culture research.-John Peters, New York Public Library
