Great British Comics offers a feast of striking cartoon graphics, a celebration of Britain's perennially popular comic heroes and their acclaimed creators, and a guide to collecting for everyone who remembers fondly the comics they grew up with. British comics are truly world famous, as well as being read by millions across the UK. Since the 1980s, there has been a British invasion of writers and artists into American comic books, revitalising everything from Batman to X-Men and originating uniquely British characters of their own, such as Modesty Blaise and the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen. Divided into chapters by themes such as schooldays, animals and the future, the book will chart the careers of familiar favourites such as Dennis the Menace and Dan Dare across the decades from the 1920s to the 1990s. The lively, informative text will be richly illustrated with toys, badges, merchandise and collectables, as well as comic-book covers, pages and annuals.
