Comics: Between The Panels
by Steve Duin & Mike Richardson

A thorough account of the history of the comics industry based on over ten years of research. This full-color, coffee table-style volume celebrates and documents the comics medium with alphabetical entries to take an idiosyncratic look at everything from creators, characters, and companies to conventions and collectors. Drawing on publisher Mike Richardson’s expertise in the field, Steve Duin (columnist for the Portland Oregonian) interviewed hundreds of comics veterans to provide the inside scoop on the early days of comics in the 1930s, the studio days of the 1940s, the crisis in the 1950s, and the resurgence in the 1960s. With behind-the-scenes information about comics in more recent decades as well. HC, 9x11, 504pg, FC (Dark Horse Comics) ISBN-13: 9781569713440
