Description
Presidents who become muscle-bound superheroes, cavemen who fight giant tabby cats, and a blonde farm girl who fervently worships the swastika—these are just a few of the truly bizarre subjects that have found their way into comic books since the 1930s. This little handbook collects 58 such gems, each treated to a two-page profile with a full-page color reproduction of the cover art, a sample of the art inside, and a synopsis with commentary by the co-creators of Graphic Novels: Everything You Need to Know. Read about Amazonian Russian superheroine Octobriana (actually an anti-Soviet satire from Czechoslovakia), a fat man who turns into a flying saucer to fight crime, a chicken who exacts revenge on the farmer, and even lesbian unicorns.
