I have been buying and reading "comics" for years, and I was so glad when they became an accepted niche in the stores as well as in the industry, and I dare say that is largely due to artists and writers who had the courage to be different and to take themselves seriously. When I read STITCHES by David Small a couple of years ago I thought it was brilliant and was so moved that he had the talent and the courage to tell his story in this way. That is the wonder of comics in the 21st century, and it took long enough but was worth the wait!
It doesn't cover just comic books as we know them. It covers comic strips too. That is, the Complete Peanuts and other reprints of newspaper strips are mentioned here as well. So is Manga, Graphic Novels etc. Also, books by Feiffer and similar artists are mentioned. There are several contributors who address their specialties.
They do something which is good, but then left me frustrated. They often mention a series within a comic, like Adam Strange. So it wasn't just the comic. However, in so many cases, if there is NO picture of the cover, there is NO listing of what issues the character appeared. And example of that is Red Nails, they do not mention what issue of Savage Tales that Conan story was in. Good look seeing that on a shrunken cover. And sometimes there is no picture of a cover.
For Nick Fury (SHIELD) they don't mention what issue Steranko started or ended. They do reference issue #159. But again, they don't tell where Strange Tales end.
At the bottom, the often have a section of "Also by" For example, for the Aforementioned SHIELD they say, "Also by Steranko" then list, "At The Stroke Of Midnight," "Captain America, " X-Men" and a few others. But they don't tell you what comics the stories appeared in or the artist did. Good Luck. And Steranko was not mentioned in the X-Men section at all.
Two other books are available and I enjoyed them more:
The Slings and Arrows Comic Guide, which lists so much of everything comics.
Or Tony Isabella's 1,000 Comics you must read.
