Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende
Paul Gravett was hailed by The Times of London as "the greatest historian of the comics and graphic novel form." Gravett co-edited the important British magazine Escape (1983-89), which championed a wider appreciation of comics from Europe and beyond. In 1990, he curated "God Save The Comics!", a major installation on British comics, which was opened by the French cultural minister Jack Lang for the launch of France's National Comics and Image Centre in Angoulême. After nine years directing a project by the Cartoon Art Trust to establish a National Cartoon Museum in London, in 2001 he became an independent exhibition curator, journalist, lecturer, and broadcaster. He is the author of Manga: 60 Years of Japanese Comics (2004), Graphic Novels (2005), Great British Comics (2006), Mammoth Book of Best Crime Comics (2008), and Incredibly Strange Comics (2008). He directs the Comic festival at London's Institute of Contemporary Arts. In 2008, he curated the western world's first exhibition of contemporary Chinese comics in London, and in 2009 he organized "In Search of the Atom Style" at the Atomium in Brussels. He is currently preparing exhibitions about Korean manhwa, Finnish artist Tove Jansson and her Moomin characters, and American comic book genius Jack Kirby.

Geht es um 1.001 Songs oder 1.001 Bands, steht den Autoren meist ihre eigene Faszination im Weg, die in nicht geringem Umfang vom Image, von der Hotness und der soziohistorischen Bedeutung durchpilzt ist, somit Dingen, die mit dem Werk und ihrer gegenwärtigen Rezeption wenig bis nichts zu tun haben. Bei Graphic Novels sind solche Sekundärebenen kaum relevant. Hier steht das Buch, die Story, die Umsetzung im Vordergrund, anstatt Zeichner und Szenaristen über alle Maßen abzufeiern.Lesen Sie weiter... ›
Dieser Buch wollte ich schenken, wurde beim Empfänger sehr geschätzt; ich werfte vor der Abgabe ein Blick rein, für interessierte eine gute Basis.

This book is a fascinating international survey of the comics medium and is very accessible for the experienced or general reader truely interested in possibilities of the medium.
Yes, certain titles have been included in the 1001 Comics list that are currently out of print or have yet to be translated into English, but with so many publishers now reprinting lost classics and translating foreign language comics, this is not a huge problem. Indeed the author, Paul Gravett, has posted a database of the 1001 Comics list on his website - www [dot] PaulGravett [dot] com - with the aim of keeping it updated with details of translations and new editions as they become available.
So cast aside your fan-boy obsession with superheroes and issue numbers, and approach this book with an open mind. I guarantee you'll discover some classic reading material you never knew existed. Despite having 960 pages, my only criticism would be that the book is too short!
It doesn't cover just comic books as we know them. It covers comic strips too. That is, the Complete Peanuts and other reprints of newspaper strips are mentioned here as well. So is Manga, Graphic Novels etc. Also, books by Feiffer and similar artists are mentioned. There are several contributors who address their specialties.
They do something which is good, but then left me frustrated. They often mention a series within a comic, like Adam Strange. So it wasn't just the comic. However, in so many cases, if there is NO picture of the cover, there is NO listing of what issues the character appeared. And example of that is Red Nails, they do not mention what issue of Savage Tales that Conan story was in. Good look seeing that on a shrunken cover. And sometimes there is no picture of a cover.
For Nick Fury (SHIELD) they don't mention what issue Steranko started or ended. They do reference issue #159. But again, they don't tell where Strange Tales end.
At the bottom, the often have a section of "Also by" For example, for the Aforementioned SHIELD they say, "Also by Steranko" then list, "At The Stroke Of Midnight," "Captain America, " X-Men" and a few others. But they don't tell you what comics the stories appeared in or the artist did. Good Luck. And Steranko was not mentioned in the X-Men section at all.
Two other books are available and I enjoyed them more:
The Slings and Arrows Comic Guide, which lists so much of everything comics.
Or Tony Isabella's 1,000 Comics you must read.
I have been buying and reading "comics" for years, and I was so glad when they became an accepted niche in the stores as well as in the industry, and I dare say that is largely due to artists and writers who had the courage to be different and to take themselves seriously. When I read STITCHES by David Small a couple of years ago I thought it was brilliant and was so moved that he had the talent and the courage to tell his story in this way. That is the wonder of comics in the 21st century, and it took long enough but was worth the wait!
