Summary:
This book examines the evolution and subgenres of the comics from The Yellow Kid in 1895 through the first decade of the modern comic book in the 1940s. First published in 1947 and long out of print, this is considered by diehard aficionados of the comics as a classic text. In this study, the author first set down information that is now common lore--that the comics are revealing reflectors of society.
