Its form, the cartoon (the Nazis are cats, the Jews mice), succeeds perfectly in shocking us out of any lingering sense of familiarity with the events described, approaching, as it does, the unspeakable through the diminutive. Founding editor of Comic Art magazine, Todd Hignite has given us an elegant, oversize, beautifully produced, 320 page hardcover book that takes you into the studio and collections of today's top independent cartoonists. In this graphic memoir, Fitzgerald paints a childhood full of sleepovers, playing dress-up, amateur fortune-telling and renting scary movies.

What makes it even more horrific is that it all actually happened. Critically acclaimed, The Sandman is one of the few graphic novels ever to be on the New York Times Best Seller list, along with Watchmen and The Dark Knight Returns. The result was Harvey Kurtzman’s Jungle Book (1959), the first all-original comics in book format and a recognizable prototype of the current graphic novel. There are exceptions (the Lord of the Rings trilogy extended editions; Catch-22; Scharpling and Wurster greatest hits; the Spectacular Spider-Man animated series) but mostly I consume stories and, in grand Jay-Z fashion, am on to the next one.

From the same guy who brought you BLACKEST NIGHT, this one’s a must-read. 7. 52 Volume 1-4 Trade Paperbacks -$19.99 – After the INFINITE CRISIS, the DC Universe spent a year without Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman—a year in which those heroes were needed more than ever as the fate of the world hung in the balance.

Of course, it's highly addictive and the always-in-control hero loses his grip, nearly assassinating Jim Gordon just to get his fix. Oddly enough, this comic is NOT the first appearance of titular protagonist Archie Andrews (that being Pep Comics #22), making it one of the only comics on this list not to include the debut of any of its long-lasting characters. Of course, things turn out more complicated than Glidden had imagined. Like pulps, comic books featured multiple, self-contained stories in a single genre or featuring a single, usually eponymous, character.

Many cosmic elements introduced during these issues currently inform many of Marvel’s cosmic books like Guardians of the Galaxy and the Infinity crossover. As other reviewers have noted, the artwork is worth viewing on its own merits and deals with universal themes from the unconscious, so even if you don't know what the heck Sandman is it is worth a look. Issue 29 adapts RIO GRANDE as well as James Stewart's WINCHESTER 73 and features a five page biography of Sunset.

It is this November to December time when the town is in total darkness that our story takes place. Barney Farmer and Lee Healey will pollute your minds with their sensational strips, whilst Melinda Gebbie discusses ‘old skool’ animation. The ICDL was created by an interdisciplinary research team at the University of Maryland in cooperation with the Internet Archive. However, there is some controversy about whether this grading service is worth the high cost, and whether it is a positive development for collectors, or if it primarily services speculators who wish to make a quick profit trading in comics as one might trade in stocks or fine art.

George is so alienated he holds his personal life at one remove while he analyses it, turning his own experiences and lifeworld into material on which his skills can be practiced. I don't want to turn anyone off, but if you are looking for things like Joan Collins rape at age 17 or Elizabeth Taylor's multiple stormy marriages,this isn't for you. Several reprint companies became involved in repackaging American material for the British market, notably the importer and distributor Thorpe & Porter.
