    On the Graphic Novel HC (2015 UPoM) 1-1ST

    1st printing. By Santiago García and Bruce Campbell. For the first time in English, an essential history of the narrative art form's global rise. A noted comics artist himself, Santiago García follows the history of the graphic novel from early nineteenth-century European sequential art, through the development of newspaper strips in the United States, to the development of the twentieth-century comic book and its subsequent crisis. With such examples from around the world as Spain, France, Germany, and Japan, García illustrates how the graphic novel represents a new model for graphic narrative production that empowers authors and challenges longstanding social prejudices against comics. Hardcover, 6-in. x 9-in., 376 pages, Text (with B&W Photos and illustrations). Cover price $60.00.
