Comics since 1945

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.
