This final work in John Lent's series of bibliographies on comic art gathers together an astounding array of citations on American comic books and comic strips. Included in this volume are citations regarding anthologies and reprints; criticism and reviews; exhibitions, festivals, and awards; scholarship and theory; and the business, artistic, cultural, legal, technical, and technological aspects of American comics. Author John Lent has used all manner of methods to gather the citations, searching library and online databases, contacting scholars and other professionals, attending conferences and festivals, and scanning hundreds of periodicals. He has gone to great length to categorize the citations in an easy-to-use, scholarly fashion, and in the process, has helped to establish the field of comic art as an important part of social science and humanities research. The ten volumes in this series, covering all regions of the world, constitute the largest printed bibliography of comic art in the world, and serve as the beacon guiding the burgeoning fields of animation, comics, and cartooning. They are the definitive works on comic art research, and are exhaustive in their inclusiveness, covering all types of publications (academic, trade, popular, fan, etc.) from all over the world. Also included in these books are citations to systematically-researched academic exercises, as well as more ephemeral sources such as fanzines, press articles, and fugitive materials (conference papers, unpublished documents, etc.), attesting to Lent's belief that all pieces of information are vital in a new field of study such as comic art.

Die Calvin-und-Hobbes-Sonntagsseiten

eine Auswahl der farbigen Sonntagsgeschichten

Comicspass: Calvin und Hobbes gehören mittlerweile fast zu den Comic-Klassikern, wohl auch weil der Autor sich wie kaum ein anderer in die Phantasiewelt eines kleinen Jungen hineinversetzen kann. Der beste Freund des sechsjährigen Calvin ist sein Stofftiger Hobbes. Der wird zum echten Tiger, wenn keiner hinsieht. Ein Abenteuer folgt dem nächsten und selbstredend geraten die beiden regelmässig in Schwierigkeiten. Dieser Band der Comicreihe besteht nur aus den sogenannten Sonntagscomics. Die Geschichten haben eine ganze Seite Platz, sich zu entwickeln und nicht nur drei Bilder wie die meisten aktuellen Cartoons. Watterson trauert der Zeit nach, in der die Künstler noch richtig Platz für ihre Arbeiten hatten und die Geschichten, Dialoge und Bilder noch Raum hatten, sich zu entwickeln. Er versucht, wenigstens für die Sonntagsausgaben der Zeitung, an die Tradition anzuknüpfen und hat diese grösseren Arbeiten hier zusammengefasst. Wie meint Watterson zum Abschluss passend: "Eins ist gewiss: Kleine Jungs werden - genau wie Tiger - das ganze Terrain erkunden, das ihnen zur Verfügung steht." Ab 8 Jahren, ****, Alexandra von Ascheraden.
