UNIVERSITY OF MICHIGAN PRESS
(W) Allan Holtz
From its earliest appearance in the 1890s, the newspaper comic strip has told the story of America, from the Irish ghetto of the Yellow Kid
to flappers, war heroes, hippies, and today's office drones and soccer moms. American Newspaper Comics
is the first comprehensive, authoritative reference work to document this fascinating history, listing over 7,000 different comic strip and cartoon features from American newspapers. This encyclopedic book offers a wealth of information, including the start and end dates of features, their format, frequency, creators, and distribution companies. The book also includes handy cross-indexes and a guide to book-length compilations of newspaper cartoons and comics, plus a CD with samples of more than 2,000 cartoon features.
