An Insightful Romp Through Comics History and Society June 4 2010
By AJ Mars - Published on
Format: Paperback
I feel smarter for having read this. Mostly a little smarter about the murky world of comic book industry and publishing subculture, but also just smarter in general. Through looking very closely at Jack Kirby, famed illustrator, the wider wold of comics, art, expression and meaning comes into focus. While the content is primarily relevant to those interested in comics, this book being almost a biography of Jack Kirby, there is quite a bit of social commentary, exploration of artistic process and fun don't-you-just-hate-bureaucracy moments to keep things interesting for those that are not completely vested in the world of comic books.

But if you have NO interest in comic books, I wouldn't recommend it. If you have an interest but lack of knowledge, get a pen out and start taking notes.

I give this five stars because the writing is superb and it is a fresh treatment of the arts, but along with the above caveat that you probably won't dig this if you don't dig comic books, I would like to add that it may be a little hard for younger readers to grasp some of the social references from the 60s and 70s, though I don't think too much in the book hinges on those references.

Misleading categorising Jan. 10 2011
By Sam Quixote - Published on
Format: Paperback
So that no-one makes the mistake I did when buying this book, I should make it clear that this is not a "graphic novel" as stated in the product description but is a collection of online articles Warren Ellis wrote for in 2009 and they are reprinted here. It's not a comic. No illustrations are here except for the one on the cover, but the book is printed in the comic book paperback format. The articles are still available online as well so if you wanted to just read them you could do so for free. As for the content? Interesting musings on comics as a medium and the history of comics through the conceit of a robotic head Warren has on his desk. Mostly though it's a bit rambling and I wanted to read a comic book instead of this. So just be warned, no comic here, just Ellis' thoughts on the comics medium.
