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.

Nur Paul Gravett mit seiner internationalen Perspektive, seiner dreißigjährigen Erfahrung als Journalist und Publizist, als Beobachter und Vorfühler für Strömungen jenseits des englischen- und französischsprachigen Raumes kam für diesen Job in Frage. Selbstverständlich muss man die Auswahl an mancher Stelle hinterfragen, doch sie ist so opulent wie sonst nirgendwo. Nicht mal Gravett selbst hatte zum Zeitpunkt der Veröffentlichung alle vorgestellten Comics und Graphic Novels gelesen, einige lagen bei Drucklegung noch nicht einmal in englischer Sprache vor. Das bedeutet, dass nun Hunderttausende Leser in aller Welt etwas von Martin tom Dieck erfahren ("Hundert Ansichten der Speicherstadt"). Oder von Anke Feuchtenberger ("Die Hure H"). Ein derartiger Differenzierungsgrad hat mich überaus erstaunt. Koreanische, ägyptische, polnische, finnische Arbeiten werden vorgestellt. Und natürlich reichlich Manga, Superhelden, Asterix, gleichwohl Trondheim, Ware und Mattotti, ja sogar David Lynchs bahnbrechender, reduktionistischer Strip "The Angriest Dog in the World" ist dabei, "Spy vs. Spy","Hägar...". Der Art-Bereich ist vertreten u. a. mit "Walking the Dog" von David Hughes, "Travel" (Yokoyama) oder "Maggots" (Chippendale).

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.

HASH(0x9243ebc4) von 5 Sternen A Fascinating Resource 8. November 2011
Von Tim W. - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
I could not disagree more with the comments of the previous reviewers.

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!

HASH(0x924feb88) von 5 Sternen frustrating 27. Oktober 2011
Von reading guy - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
The previous reviewer is right on target; this is initially an interesting book to flip through, but good luck trying to actually make use of it. Once you read the articles you will find it generalizes (The Fantastic Four - okay well, that's a lot of issues...) without breaking down artists or story liens that are of consequence. Furthermore, lots of early (1800s) comics are profiled but where to get them? Are they in anthologies? How can they be tracked down? So three stars for visual presentation but lacking in content and editing.

HASH(0x92349b4c) von 5 Sternen Maybe it's 10,000 comics 25. Oktober 2011
Von Barry Pearl - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
This is a well printed, 960 page book. The title is fantasy and completely misleading. When they discuss comics, the often discuss an individual one, but also they discuss, full runs of titles like the X-Men. But they don't break down which individual issues are done by the artists they like, including Kirby, Heck and Adams. When they discuss the character Sauron, they don't mention what issue. So this is really 10,000 comics you must read before you die. Which doesn't help me much in determining which comics stood out in long runs.

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.

HASH(0x924feb94) von 5 Sternen Excellent!! 20. September 2013
Von wendigoeater - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
I have only read Marvel/DC and some Dark Horse issues and stopped to read comics several years ago. But since I bought this book I found a whole new world. I discovered the talent from writers and pencillers from all over the planet, either brand new or from several decades back. Now reading comics is something refreshing for me again. I did not expect a book to tell me where to find the titles. Actually finding the comics is part of the fun, and so far I have found every single title I looked for, on paper or digital. Surely it helps that it does not necessarily have to be in english.

HASH(0x923ecd20) von 5 Sternen Yet another great book in the "1001 ... Before You Die" series 10. Mai 2012
Von Anne Salazar - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
I love the books in this series and my only complaint would be that for a topic such as this there should probably have been a photo from each book, especially when a book would be described as "visually ground-breaking" ... or "this artist really opened up a new field" ... and so on. But then, I had a little trouble handling the book as heavy as it is and it would have to have been at least twice as heavy, so I am thrilled to have it as it is. Also, the reviewers did a great job with the inclusive world-wide selections and the individual descriptions, which I see as "word pictures".

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!
