The first global history of comics from 1968 through to the present day, arranged chronologically and richly illustrated with prime examples of the artists, styles and movements being discussed. The authors contextualize the crucial modern period within the art form's broader history and offer a description of the more fluid, international and digital scene that is the medium's likely future. They supply examples from around the world - including the US and UK, France, Spain, Belgium, Italy, Germany, Switzerland, Argentina, Japan, South Korea and New Zealand - and from a range of renowned and lesser-known artists.
