    A well done history of the American comic strip that is occasionally insightful and unusually generous regarding the artists who created and currently create comic strips. I have never found a strip history truly excellent, and this book is no exception. My guess is that the field is simply too vast for the story to be told in fewer than 1000 pages with more illustrations than the art budget will support, so this, perhaps, should not be held against this book, but I persist if finding it unsatisfying.
