Description

Comic art has always been with us; its earliest examples might be said to include cave paintings, hieroglyphics, and the Bayeux tapestry. The comic as we know it today has more recent origins, with a number of different countries playing their part in its development.

In "Comics - An Illustrated History", collectors and experts Alan and Laurel Clark consider the past, present and future of the comic from an international perspective, from Hogarth's prints via the birth of the superhero to the graphic novel. Along the way they examine the development of comics in Japan, Brazil, Australia, Canada, Portugal, Holland, France, Germany and Italy - in short, any country with an indigenous comic industry.

Illustrated with more than 250 specially commissioned colour photographs, many of rare publications from the authors' private collection, this book is a tribute to fine artists, writers and publishers all over the world.
