    This is an excellent retrospective on a pivotal decade in the development of comic books. Don't expect Superman and Spider-Man here, though ... this is devoted to what would have been called underground comix in earlier days, and alternative comics later on. Luckily, they're all just classified as comic books now, much to the enrichment of the mainstream and the edges.

Don't expect Superman and Spider-Man here, though ... this is devoted to what would have been called underground comix in earlier days, and alternative comics later on. Luckily, they're all just classified as comic books now, much to the enrichment of the mainstream and the edges. I think the highlight of the book is the oddly prophetic "In Pictopia" by Alan Moore and Don Simpson, in which a comic strip magician along the lines of Mandrake comes to realize that his world is shrinking and things are changing as popularities change and the four-colored super-heroes encroach on everyone. There's a pathos and irony there that well fits the 21st century as it did the 1980's. Definitely worth a read for a comic book fan, and makes an interesting primer for any neophyte to the more artsy side of the medium.

    A guy that used to work at my workplace left this behind when he got fired, and I adopted it. There's some pretty good stuff in here! Only a few comics with whom I was familiar. Russ Olson's probably heard of 'em all. By the time I was reading the short blurbs about each contributor I had forgotten who was which contributor. That actually made it more interesting!
