A True Chronicle of American Comic-Book History 24 février 2013
Par Bruno M - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
As the publisher's description says, American Comic Book Chronicles: 1960-1964 is the first release in an very ambitious series that documents every decade of American comic-book history from the 1940s to today.

This volume is divided into 5 chapters, each one dedicated to a whole year from the 1960 to 1964 period. The book is loaded full of information and pictures scanned from the cited original comic-books. Also, at the beginning of each chapter there's also a time line of the year in question, addressing not only the most relevant comic related events but also historical and cultural ones to give a nice and quick context.

What I think is very important to remark of this series is that it covers ALL of the American comic-books, not only DC and Marvel super-heroes titles. Non-superheroes publications like MAD, Archie, Dell and Gold Key comics are given a big deal of relevance. I find this fascinating because it gives this collection a much wider scope than I was expecting.

The author, John Wells, makes a terrific job analysing the wide array of publication of different genres, putting them all into historical context and cultural trends, going from the big picture to the small details with great narrative skills.

The edition is truly beautiful and classy. This is a sturdy, well-crafted volume. The front and back covers as well as the spine feature silver metallic engravings. The interior layout and design is elegant and functional. The glossy paper stock is high quality, as well as the printing.

In conclusion, if you are a serious comic-book aficionado, you should definitely check this book out, I think this volume and the upcoming ones of the collection will become an invaluable work of reference.

Awesomely Entertaining 6 juillet 2013
Par Nicola Mansfield - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
I am not actually finished this book yet but I've read more than half and have no intention of stopping; it's just that I am reading it slowly since it is so awesomely entertaining and figure I've read enough to review it. If you have any certain love for the comics and their history, whether you be an old pro or a relative newbie, I can't see any comic fan not just adoring this book. It takes a behind the scenes walk through the comic book history year by year, publisher by publisher. Absolutely chock full of illustrations from adverts, mini page shots (readable), cover shots and full-page page reproductions, Just looking at the pictures is a joy. But the meat is in the extensive text. Intended as a full series to cover the years 1940-1999 (I think); this set of years is perfect to start off with as it is these years all the oldies dropped out of circulation and during this time that "National Comics" became DC Comics and the new upstart Marvel Comics came onto the scene. The book covers all the major publishing houses: Dell, Gold Key, Archie, Harvey, MAD, DC, Marvel, etc.

I'm a '70s girl myself and while these years cover before I was born, many of the titles were what I read during my childhood or collected through used sources. It has brought back some great memories, introduced me to some new titles I'd like to read and given me an amazing insight into the behind the scenes and public history of comics. These years are also crucial as it is the period when the industry finally increased the permanent price of .10cent comics to .12cents and even the wallet busting .15cents at Dell. Imagine if comic books were still priced so kids could buy them with their allowance! Absolutely fascinating reading and I plan on getting the rest of the series from this time period forward; I'm not much interested in the earlier years.

Essential and FUN 31 juillet 2013
Par M. Tauber - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
I think this is essential reading for any fan of comics history. You can read the history of Marvel or DC in many places. The magic of this book is to present their histories contemporaneously. Even more edifying is the inclusion of Dell, Archie, Charlton and other companies that are usually overshadowed. Here they are given almost equal weight, particularly Dell which at the start of this book was the best selling comics company. I've read lots of histories as well as the TwoMorrows magazine slate, and was still surprised by things. The book also puts the comics history in context of the times, showing comics' reflection of trends. I'm excited by this book to continue on to the other chronicles!

Essential for anyone with an interest in Sixies' comic books. 21 avril 2013
Par L. ESSEMBER - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
I'm a fan of sixties' comic books. Found at the news stand or convenience store, before there where comic book stores. For most of the decade, a comic book cost 12 cents. Annuals cost a quarter. During the years covered in this volume of the American Comic Book Chronicles, I got my comics by pedaling my bike a mile down to the main street newspaper shop. There I found Marvel, DC and Charlton comic books. I'd buy four or five. I picked up on the artists credits. Kirby, Ditko, Wood were the ones I wished I could draw like. Well. this book brought back a lot of memories. There's lots of detail. I found myself following the book's thread of explaining the distribution side, the business model, that brought the pulp, four-color, imaginary adventures that I enjoyed in the early sixties. This wasn't something that I cared about as a kid. But it is well documented here. And, of course, the book is loaded with beautifully reproduced comic covers from all the publishers of the period. It's a great looking book, a fun read, covering every publisher, not just Marvel and DC.
If you have an interest in comic books, this book is essential reading. I anticipate getting the next volume, 1965-69, as soon as it's released.

Get this book already! 27 août 2013
Par RyanC - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
GREAT book! I haven't yet read the others in the series but this one was epic. LOVED it beginning to end.
Nice overview of all the comics and genres being published by all the houses in the early Sixties-- DC, Marvel, Charlton, etc. It made me want to go back and sample some of the era I had overlooked before. I learned SO many new things and heard lots of new angles on the creators, the story lines, the business of comic books. Well-written, nicely researched.
