Part of a ten-volume bibliography series on comic art compiled by John A. Lent during the past decade, this volume provides more information on U.S. and Canadian comic art, animation, caricature, and gag, political, illustrative, and magazine cartoons than any other printed source in the world. Lent, founding editor of International Journal of Comic Art and longtime scholar of cartooning globally, takes great pains to be exhaustive, representative, and accurate in providing 11,367 citations of books, chapters, articles, and fugitive materials gleaned from a variety of sources worldwide, including about 400 periodicals and journals. Easy to use, incorporating a well-structured outline that includes categories and sub-categories, Lent spans every conceivable aspect of comic art. Other features include periodical directories for both Canada and the United States with addresses, typical contents, and inaugural dates of 101 comic art-related journals, magazines, and fanzines, and citations to hundreds of cartoonists and animators and their characters and works. Undoubtedly, this volume and the other nine in the Greenwood/Praeger series are unequalled as the definitive comic art bibliographies.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"This fourth volume in a planned six-part set on comic art adds much needed scholarship to the broadly defined subject area....While one may question the value of bibliographies in an age of online indexes, much of the literature on comic art is journalistic, anecdotal, or brief, making identifying materials on the topic difficult. A search in the common databases will not yield all the citations listed in this work. Though it will yield some that are not included, the value of this bibliography is in uncovering elusive references found in bibliographies, bibliographic periodicals and print indexes, via word-of-mouth, and in the compiler's own database of almost 400 mass communications periodicals. Thus it is the only source of its kind on the subject. For serious scholars of comic arts, this work is indispensable....Recommended. Upper-level undergraduates through faculty/researchers." - Choice
"This is one of a six-volume set of bibliographies covering animation and cartoons in Europe, Africa, Asia, Australia/Oceania and Latin America, and comic books and strips in the US. The listings are divided into chapters on comic art; gag, illustrative and magazine cartoons; animation; caricature; and political cartoons. Within those sections, the entries are arranged under topics such as general sources, advertising, artistic aspects, associations, fans, exhibitions, legal aspects, syndication, and technical aspects. Lent also designates entries according to themes such as children, political correctness, and violence." - Art Book News Annual
"[F]ills a gap left by other current resources, both print and electronic. For libraries supporting programs in popular culture, Lent's book is a welcome addition." - College & Research Libraries
