Duin and Richardson have, in 'Comics: Between the Panels,' produced a fun and fascinating reference volume packed with literature and lore covering comics' entire galaxy, from well-known characters and creators to underground and little-known artists and series that had a significant impact on the industry. The work takes a distinctly anecdotal view of the comics world, focusing more on personal relationships between creators, comics folklore and legend(s), intellectual history of characters and artistic movements, and does not shy away from controversy, nor offering opinions. Those looking for a book concentrating on straight-up biographies and origin tales of characters and creators may be disappointed by this work - as mentioned above, it's the personal ideas and motivations behind the mask of the professional that drive this book and add to its verve. A worthy addition to any comic fan's or historian's shelf. Enjoy!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
