Asian Comics SC (2017 University Press of Mississippi) comic books 2017-2019
1st printing. By John A Lent. Grand in its scope, Asian Comics dispels the myth that, outside of Japan, the continent is nearly devoid of comic strips and comic books. Relying on his fifty years of Asian mass communication and comic art research, during which he traveled to Asia at least seventy-eight times and visited many studios and workplaces, John A. Lent shows that nearly every country had a golden age of cartooning and has experienced a recent rejuvenation of the art form. Softcover, 8-in. x 11-in., 352 pages, B&W. Cover price $30.00.
