Newspaper comics are not only funny, they also
reflect their times. In this collection, Brian Walker has amassed more than a
half-century of strips, including rare examples provided by the artists
themselves. Featured cartoonists include Walk Kelly ("Pogo"), Charles
Schulz ("Peanuts"), Garry Trudeau ("Doonesbury"), Bill
Watterson ("Calvin and Hobbes"), Scott Adams ("Dilbert")
and Patrick McDonnel ("Mutts"), along with many more.
Organized by decade, with biographical profiles and descriptions
of different genres and themes, "The Comics" forms a graphic survey
of American culture since 1945. Perfect companion to Walker's The
Comics Before 1945 for anyone interested in comics history.
Revised and updated for the paperback edition this serves as the most
comprehensive and graphically stunning survey of post-war comics.
