The sweeping story of cartoons, comic strips, and graphic novels and their hold on the American imagination. Comics have conquered America. From our multiplexes, where Marvel and DC movies reign supreme, to our television screens, where comics-based shows like The Walking Dead have become among the most popular in cable history, to convention halls, best-seller lists, Pulitzer Prize–winning titles, and MacArthur Fellowship recipients, comics shape American culture, in ways high and low, superficial, and deeply profound. In American Comics, Columbia professor Jeremy Dauber takes readers through their incredible but little-known history, starting with the Civil War and cartoonist Thomas Nast, creator of the lasting and iconic images of Uncle Sam and Santa Claus; the golden age of newspaper comic strips and the first great superhero boom; the moral panic of the Eisenhower era, the Marvel Comics revolution, and the underground comix movement of the 1960s and ’70s; and finally into the twenty-first century, taking in the grim and gritty Dark Knights and Watchmen alongside the brilliant rise of the graphic novel by acclaimed practitioners like Art Spiegelman and Alison Bechdel. Dauber’s story shows not only how comics have changed over the decades but how American politics and culture have changed them. Throughout, he describes the origins of beloved comics, champions neglected masterpieces, and argues that we can understand how America sees itself through whose stories comics tell. Striking and revelatory, American Comics is a rich chronicle of the last 150 years of American history through the lens of its comic strips, political cartoons, superheroes, graphic novels, and more.

Have you ever wondered why others get what they want out of life? MONEY! FAME! WISDOM OF THE ANCIENTS! BIG MUSCLES! while you are still just a creep, a miserable failure, a regular no-goodnick? Have you? Thousands of creeps and no-goodnicks have written to say that The MAD Reader has provided them with hours of instruction and hundreds of helpful suggestions, but they're lying. We've read the book ourselves and there isn't a line anywhere in here about how to LEARN SPEEDWRITING, get a start on HOTEL MANAGEMENT, remove unsightly skin blemishes, or any of the other of the important things you need to know to get ahead fast. Look inside and what do you find: some foolishness about a thick-witted muscleman named Superduperman, a completely unjustified attack on our noble and truth-seeking daily press, various bits of buffoonery about television, comic characters and other trivia, the whole thing is laughable. Actually the MAD reader won't do a thing for does things to you. IF YOU HAVE NORMAL INTELLIGENCE OR LESS we guarantee that one reading of the MAD Reader will shake your hold on reality in six weeks or less and that reading it through twice will positively rot your mind. How's that for an offer? You too can be a mad reader. START a copy and try it out n the privacy of your own home. On second thought, buy two copies...they go fast.

Wood associate Bhob Stewart's long-awaited Against The Grain: Mad Artist Wallace Wood is the most comprehensive book ever produced on the career of one of science fiction and comics' finest artists! For his Mad magazine work alone, many have long regarded Wallace Wood as the world's greatest cartoonist, and this remarkable memoir of life at the Wood Studio includes a biographical portrait, tracing Woody's life while exploring the humorous spirit, dark detours and psychological twists of this gifted maverick who often went against the grain! Many artists and writers who knew Wood personally have also contributed articles and essays, making this book a huge compendium of imaginative art, insights and critical commentary! From childhood drawings and ambitious teenage samples to an endless parade of pages for a variety of publishers - Avon, EC, Fox, Marvel, Warren, and more - plus illustrations for Galaxy Science Fiction, this is the most stunning display of Wood art ever assembled! Bill Pearson, executor of the Wood Estate, has made available rare drawings directly from Wood's own files, while noted art collector Roger Hill provides a wealth of obscure, previously unpublished Wood drawings and paintings.
