One Comment to The Steranko History of Comics, Vol. 1

  1. James Steranko is an American graphic artist, comic book writer artist historian, magician, publisher and film production illustrator who has work for decades till the present.

  2. 5 stars may be pushing it, but it s a topic close to my own heart, and Steranko is a singularly captivating narrator just see twitter iamsteranko His aim here seems to be encyclopedic than overview, covering not only major innovations in the form but also the waves of imitators they inspired The inclusions from the original sources sometimes boggle the mind 4 oversized pages of Shadow prose excerpts , and I would have liked to see interior art from the titles mentioned, even though I can see t [...]


  3. This was probably the first book ABOUT comics that I ever read The campus for the University of Pittsburgh branch in my town was across the street from my house, and the university library as a two minute walk from my back door Back in the day, locals could borrow books from there with their public library card, and I found that they had numerous books on the history of the genre there that I took out constantly to pour over I ve read numerous books about the comics industry in the intervening y [...]


  4. This is realley interesting, and I learned lot World War Two was a key point in the development of superheros, but this goes back earlier than that in places It is not an easy read in places, not like my usual fiction books But I wanted a change I always read comics and sometimes still do But I didn t know anything about their history The authoer goes over the development of Superman, Batman, The Shadow, The Spider, and lots of other characters I never knew existed It is very cool stuff I would [...]


  5. The Steranko History of Comics according to Steranko Kidding asside, this is a pretty good go to book to find out things about the pre history of comic books, meaning the pulp era.Though nowhere near complete, it s still a great search book.My only qualm is that it s too darn big with pages matching the size of most newstand papers think National Enquierer , and printed on cheap paper, meaning that everytime you consult it for information, you re risking damaging it and believe me, mine is prett [...]


  6. This is legendary artist Jim Steranko s History of Comics This oversize book has lots of interesting examples from the Golden Age of comics Highlights include full page examples of Hal Foster s Prince Valiant , Alex Raymond s Flash Gordon and Burne Hogarth s Tarzan Also, numerous Pulp and Golden Age covers throughout the book.


  7. Great book that, along with the Jules Feiffer s THE GREAT COMIC BOOK HEROES, introduced me to and taught me about some of the characters and creators I had never known before If you can find the Steranko books I highly recommend you grab them.
