‘The Comic Book History of Comics’ Collection: Tintin and the Nazis [Exclusive Preview]


Comic Book Comics, the six-issue miniseries by Fred Van Lente and Ryan Dunlavey that retold the history of comic books in comic books, finally gets collected on May 23 (note: not May 9, as previously announced) in an IDW trade paperback collection titled The Comic Book History of Comics: The Inspiring, Infuriating, and Utterly Insane Story of the American Comic Book History. Our exclusive preview from the The Comic Book History of Comics goes international this week, investigating the early days of French-language comics. Next week, the global tour continues as we take a drive down the Chunnel to explore the British comics industry, Alan Moore and the UK comics purges of the 1950s, which were arguably worse than the ones in the US!*

(* Yes, we said the UK would be this week’s story, but the book’s new, later release date means you get extra installments of this column. No, no need to thank us. The looks on your faces is enough.)
