Comics, comix & graphic novels: a history of comic art
Phaidon, 24/apr/2001 - 240 pagine
Comics, Comix & Graphic Novels is the first fully documented study to explore the graphic qualities of the comic book, and the development of the genre into a sophisticated and culturally revealing popular art form. The book traces the history of the comic from early cartoon-like woodcuts through to the graphic strips of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Organized thematically it explores the various genres of the comic book, including humour, adventure, girls' comics, underground and alternative. The careers of the creators of the best-known characters -- from Superman and Tintin to Tank Girl -- are revealed, as are the stories behind the much-loved comics such as The Beano and The Incredible Hulk.

Comics, comix & graphic novelsRecensione dell'utente - Book Verdict
Comics, comix (adult-oriented comics focused on psychosocial or political issues), and graphic novels, hitherto discarded into the subcanonical gutter of "mere entertainment," have recently begun to acquire grudging respectability as "real" art and literature. Thus, any serious and thorough considerations of the subject are both recent and rare phenomena, and this work could therefore claim a place in most collections simply by virtue of its uniqueness. However, the astounding historical and tranglobal scope of this undertaking--from 12th-century Bayeux tapestry to current Japanese works--its generosity of visual example, and its consistently perceptive placement within both social and artistic contexts will make this the Jensen of its genre for years to come. Sabin (lecturer, Central St. Martin's College of Art) has created a work that will offer both giddy amusement to lay readers and serious value as textbook and reference source to scholars and librarians. For all collections.--Bill Piekarski, Southwestern Coll. Lib., Chula Vista, Cal.

I guess i found it a bit biased, and not including authors I like.
