THE COMIC BOOK HISTORY OF COMICS #1 Review: Near Perfection is Hard to Improve

Although the updated version doesn’t add much in terms of real content to the original series, THE COMIC BOOK HISTORY OF COMICS still holds up. Van Lente’s historical account of a much loved medium is well-researched and approachable, with a healthy dose of humor. The re-released version is worth picking up, for both those who have and have not read the original version.
