“Comics has finally gotten the history–and the historians–it deserves. The Comic Book History of Comics is a comic in love with comic books, with the visionaries and madmen that created them, and the poor lunatics so obsessed we still make ’em today. Fred and Ryan have crafted one of the most essential–and most enjoyable–honest and earnest histories of this, the most awful, wonderful, way to make a living yet devised by man. Love comics? You’ll love this.” –Matt Fraction
