Description - Comics, Comix & Graphic Novels by Roger Sabin

For more than a century the comic book has been a familiar and popular artform. As vehemently criticized as it is passionately defended, it has evolved from humble beginnings into a graphically sophisticated and culturally revealing medium. Encompassing traditions from the USA, Britain, Europe and Japan, this work presents a comprehensive survey of comic art. It traces the history of the medium from "comic papers" for kids, through the underground "comix" movements of the 1960s and 1970s, to the glossy book-format "graphic novels" of today. Organized thematically, it investigates comic art's varied genres - including humour, adventure, underground and alternative - and charts the rise, fall and rise of the medium.
