If you were ever curious about learning the history of comics but never wanted to scour through boring history this is the book for you. It was assigned to me last semester and I loved it. I've never been interested in the origins of comics (although I read them). This was eye opening and entertaining. Comic history in comic format? Amazing concept and perfectly executed. .
