RECOMMENDED READING - COMIC BOOK FEVER...


Images copyright TWOMORROWS PUBLISHING

A book you may enjoy is COMIC BOOK FEVER by GEORGE
KHOURY, which celebrates comics from 1976 to 1986.  To be honest,
my impression was that some chapters are stretched pretty thin as far as
written content goes, with the author saying something because he has a
book to fill, rather than because he has something interesting to say, but
the visual images and chapters containing comments from comicbook
stalwarts (like JOHN ROMITA and SAL BUSCEMA, etc.) com-
pensate for this occasional inadequacy somewhat.

Anyway, read the back cover spiel and make up your own minds.
You could certainly spend your money in worse ways.  Available at
FORBIDDEN PLANET and all good comicbook shops.
