“What should be a comprehensive and useful checklist of secondary data—the International Bibliography of Comics Literature, by Wolfgang Kempkes—is marred by inaccuracies, incomplete data, and inconvenience. The material is divided into eight general categories, such as histories of the development of comics, structure, readership, etc., and then subdivided by country of origin (Argentina, Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Germany, Finland, France, Great Britain, Italy, Mexico, the Netherlands, Austria, Portugal, Sweden, Switzerland, Spain, South Africa, Czechoslovakia, the USSR, and the United States). A subject cross-index in the first edition was inexplicably deleted in the revised edition, thus making it impossible to locate entries on specific artists or comics, the major use for a checklist. The book is, however, the only readily available source of information on criticism published outside the United States to 1974 and illustrates the extent to which the most comprehensive study of American comics has taken place abroad, especially in Italy, France, and Germany, rather than on native shores.” (M. Thomas Inge in Handbook of American Popular Culture, 2nd rev. and enlarged ed., New York/Westport/London: Greenwood Pr., 1989, p. 210.)
