Given that the evolution of comics has been a worldwide process, with innumerable innovations in form and content taking place in every comics scene around the globe, it's no wonder there are so few comprehensive reference works on the subject. Luckily, when we've already got one this bloody good, we don't really NEED many survey works on the subject! Horn's work ranks as a giant achievement in comics scholarship, one that every serious enthusiast of international comics simply must own. Though it's somewhat dated (due to the lack of an updated edition since '97), the vast majority of the information contained herein remains useful and informative, since so much of it is historical in nature. While any reference work dedicated to such a broad subject is bound to fall short in the eyes of some readers whose area of specialty might not be given the emphasis they think it deserves, this is a survey work, and it fills that role very, very well, even given the lack of an updated version.

I know comics. I have been a professional writer and cartoonist since the late '90s; I teach college courses in comics appreciation and comics creation; I have favorite titles from individual countries, and favorite periods within those countries' individual comics histories. And yet, I never fail to learn something new when flipping through this invaluable tome. This book has my wholehearted endorsement. If you're interested in looking beyond the capes and tights that dominate mainstream America's conception of comics to find what the rest of the world does with one of our greatest art forms, this book will serve you well.

This is one of those books that was advertised in comic books back in the early seventies that took me thirty years to find. The info is somewhat dated now, but there is a lot of excellent background information on some of the medium's greatest creations and creators. Recommended!

This is a highly informative and very entertaining encyclopedia. It is amazingly helpful for doing any kind of research, including figuring out which cartoons are worth collecting.

This was an updating of the original World Encyclopedia of Comics, originally published in the 1970s. Editor and French comic expert Maurice Horn has bridged the gap from the original to include many of the revolutionary works that followed the original volume's publication. There are articles galore on just about every major comic strip and comic book from around the world, key writers and artists, as well as noted characters. There is the occasional piece of misinformation and misinterpretation; but, the bulk of the work is first rate. There is one puzzling detail, though: Maurice Horn appears to have some kind of personal agenda in his article for French artist Phillipe Druillet (Loan Sloane). The article basically states that Druillet is completely overrated and not worthy of the awards he has received, without ever providing justification for such bold statements, or making similar statements about other artists. The article is credited to Horn, which suggests bad blood between the two. Apart from that, you can immerse yourself in page after page of fantastic creations, from Alley Oop to Alley Sloper; Tintin,, Asterix, Lucky Luke and Spirou, Golgo 13, 8 Man, Tetsuwan Atom (aka Astroboy); Diabolik, Kriminal, and Valentina; Corto Maltese, Blake and Mortimer, and Dan Dare; Buck Rogers and Flash Gordon, and just about anything inbetween. You can also find a chronological history of comic milestones, a reprinting of the original Comics Code, and a section of color reprints of fabulous Sunday strips and panels from comic books. This is a must have for any library of comic references.

If you're at all interested in the topic- this is a decent overview of the subject; a great place to start if you need ideas for further research. Pick one up- you won't be sorry. Unless you hate fun.
