Abstract
This book charts the history of American comic books, from 1930s comic strip collections to contemporary graphic novels. The author examines how comic books have reflected, and in some cases even shaped, American pop culture. Depression-era escapism, World War II patriotism, 1950s teen culture, Vietnam-era angst, Japanese comic book art influences, and a broad array of modern-day concerns are all reflected in comic book history.
