Tony Isabella, qui aura 60 ans le 22 décembre prochain, est un scénariste américain de comics, propriétaire de comic shop et critique de comics. Après avoir, en tant que fan, adressé de nombreux courriers à Marvel Comics, Isabella a démarré sa carrière en 1972 dans la Maison des Idées. Au cours de sa période dans les comics, Isabella a notamment créé Black Goliath chez Marvel et Black Lightning chez DC. Il a écrit des runs de Power-Man, Ghost Rider et Captain America. Avec cet ouvrage, qui est ce vain exercice très anglo-saxon de dresser des listes, mais étendu sur plus de 270 pages de papier glacé, Isabella signale les comic books (donc pas les comic strips) qui ont le plus compté pour lui, depuis la fin des années 1930. Forcément subjectif, ce regard est néanmoins celui d'un fan collectionneur doublé d'un "insider" de cette industrie. Il y a forcément des oublis (exemple purement américain : pas de Madman ! L'Europe a très peu de citations et encore s'agit-il de Tintin, Astérix etc.). La lecture de cette liste reste cependant agréable voire instructive autant qu'amusante. J'ai pour ma part noté quelques références à rechercher sur amazon.fr pour compléter mes collections !

1000 Comics: A Journey to be enjoyed 4 novembre 2009
Par Barry Pearl - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
To this day, I feel that comics should be fun, and the first thing about this book is that it is fun. What a great eclectic list.

What surprised me most, however, is the wave of nostalgia that hit me. I lived through so much of this and it was great to see old friends back: Little Dot, Lulu, Dennis the Menace, Jerry Lewis and some that I had forgotten Sugar and Spike (Four entries!). Not just at comics from Marvel and DC this book gave a change to look back, but also a chance to catch up.

Tony still has the heart of a fan. I was concerned that this would be another one of those list where some "lectures" about what was good and bad. Instead Tony takes us on a personal journey through a life in comics, his life, and remembers the fun stops. He does in so brief, thoughtful and even funny references. These are observations, not notes to a thesis. For example:

On Iron Man in TOS #39, "His origin will be changed periodically to accommodate new wars."
Sadly true. (ery true. I fear we will not run out of wars for the new generations.)

Wonder Woman #108 "I bought the issue when no one was looking!"

And while he might have thought "Little Archie peaked too early" it is interesting that his comic is placed next to the Atom! Who was also little.

Yes, there is Fin Fang Foom, Konga, Menace, the Fantastic Four, Uncle Scrooge (who has a barroom brawl described as "Jack Kirby with Ducks!") But Tony takes his time to remember some of the most important comics that can be forgotten because their publishers are no longer around, like Dick Briefer's Frankenstein.

I thought this would be a book to read in a day, but it has stretched to a week. Now I want to go back to the candy store where I got my comics in the 1960s and 1970s re read them. Or go back to the 40's and pick up Pep Comics, Fun Comics and even Young Romance. Or a few new ones I know nothing about.

And it is a beautiful, colorful book, laid out and arranged just right. If you are thinking of just buying this for a gift for a new reader, or an old one: don't. Buy this for yourself. (Alright, buy two).

Note: Don't go nuts. I am sure someone will review this and say Tony left this out or didn't put that in. Of course, this is only1,000 comics. As I said earlier, is not just the list, it's the journey that should be enjoyed.

The book gives hope to Isabella's sentiment that today is the true Golden Age of comics 18 décembre 2009
Par GraphicNovelReporter.com - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
You can see the evolution of the comics industry through these pages, brought to you courtesy of Tony Isabella, "America's most beloved comics writer and columnist," who writes and reviews for Comics Buyer's Guide. Isabella has been writing comics for four decades now, and he's perhaps best known as the creator of DC Comics' Black Lightning, the first African-American superhero to get his own title at DC.

But it's Isabella's perspective as a fan, not a creator, that feeds the joys of reading 1,000 Comic Books You Must Read. You can see the growth of the industry in the book, but also the changing of the readership. As we travel from a time where comic books regularly sold millions of copies every month to the present, where the numbers are much, much smaller, we see the transformation of our culture's tastes and habits unfold before our very eyes.

The original Superman comics from the late 1930s kick off the collection, a nice tribute to the man of steel, without whom the format of comics would be vastly different, if it existed at all. From there, we move on to the 1940s, where the Golden Age of superheroes really began. All the classics are here: Batman, The Flash, Green Lantern, Captain Marvel, Captain America, Archie, plus the wild military and adventure comics of the day (and even wacky things like Daredevil Battles Hitler). Each two-page spread is a trip to a distant past that seems not so far away through comics. Although excerpts from the comics are not included here (Isabella does give a brief synopsis of each story inside to show why they're being picked), just the covers themselves tell an interesting story. Some of them are gorgeous (the painted image of Captain Marvel Adventures #18, which introduces Mary Marvel, for example, is striking), some of them are so enticing that you long to look inside.

Isabella introduces each decade of comics history with a brief overview to give you an idea of what was going on in comics at the time. It's interesting to graph the number of pages devoted to each decade: the '90s get fewer than 20 pages devoted to them; the '70s and '80s combined get the same number of pages as the '60s. But also telling is the fact that the current decade gets 45 pages and sees the inclusion of several important graphic novels (Persepolis, Blankets, Sentences). The book gives hope to Isabella's sentiment that today is the true Golden Age of comics. As he puts it, "Readers can enjoy both the new groundbreaking material now being published and, thanks to affordable reprints, the classics of the past."

A few glaring Omissions but quite good 31 mai 2010
Par Tim Janson - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
Longtime comic book writer and reviewer Tony Isabella presents a gift for comic book fans...his picks for the 1000 comic books you must read. Now note that this isn't necessarily meant to be the greatest comics although certainly many would fall into that category, or perhaps most important might even be more appropriate. Isabella has segmented his book by decade beginning with the hero who started it all, Superman, an continuing with a look at each decade leading off with the 1940s and continuing to new Millennium.

A picture of each and everyone of the thousand comics is included along with the issue #, artist and writer credits, publisher, and date. Isabella then gives a one paragraph note about why the issue was included in the book. The diversity of titles is extraordinary! As comic fans we sometimes get wrapped up too much into superhero titles. Comics, especially back in the 1940s and 1950s were an incredible mixed bag: action, war, horror, humor, detective, science fiction, romance, and westerns all enjoyed their eras of popularity and they are well-represented in the book.

Yes the major issues are hit upon: .Marvel Comics #1. Flash Comics #1, More Fun Comics #52 (the First Spectre), Detective Comics #27, All-Star Comics #3...the key titles of the Golden Age are all included. But what's also included is the lesser known books like Quality's Police Comics #1; Jumbo Comics #48 with its fabulous Sheena cover; Frankenstein Comics #1; and Santa Claus Funnies in Four Color #128. I was especially pleased to see Isabella did not overlook many of the great 50s and 60s humor comics like The Adventures of Jerry Lewis and Bob Hope. Disney Comics are well represented as well.

Could I argue on a few things with Isabella? Sure..like how the new Millennium section gets a longer section than the 70s, 80s, or 90s and the decade is not even over yet. Still, the 60s gets it due justice as arguably the comic book industry's most important decade with fifty pages of content. Sure we can say there's books that should have been included. 1974 saw the first appearances of two of Marvel's most popular characters of the past 25 years, The Punisher (Spiderman #129) and Wolverine (Hulk #180) and neither are included. But hey, that's what makes books like this so fun.

Isabella even gives you tips on how you can find these must reads. I'll give you a tip , too, be a millionaire!

The 1 Book About Comics You Must Read! 28 novembre 2009
Par Ramon Schenk - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
This is the book for you if you are either: 1) a comic book reader, 2) interested in the history of comics, 3) a fan of comic book writer Tony Isabella or 4) a human being.

It covers, as the title implies, 1000 of the best comic books ever produced in the USA. Isabella, a veteran comic book fan and writer, has selected these for both the casual comic book reader and the seasoned veteran. Lots and lots of information about the time period, the creators, the publishing history and the characters.

Absolutely top notch!

It showcases some of the best comic book cover art of all time 24 juin 2012
Par Charles Ashbacher - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
While the 1000 covers of comics were selected based on Isabella's subjective personal criteria, I really could mount no reasonable criticism of any of the choices. His goal was to demonstrate the wide variety of topics and artwork as well as the evolutionary changes in many of the long-running characters. Given the quality of the writers/editors/artists of the genre and the ability to be completely divorced from reality, no area of human endeavor has the breadth of the comics.
For each comic, there is a high-quality picture of the cover, listings of the writer, artist and publisher as well as a one-paragraph description of the story. The chapters are based on decades, starting with the thirties and concluding with the early titles of the twenty-first century. I read the book in installments and had to suppress a desire to buy large numbers of comics while on exploratory trips to the local used book store. You want to read them all, even the ones that you are familiar with.
