Did we forget to mention Comic Book Comics #6?
Comic Book Comics #6, a Diamond Previews "Certified Cool" selection! The too-crazy-not-to-be-true story of the comic book industry ends at new beginnings! GRAPHIC NOVELS: Where did the term come from -- Will Eisner, or a Swiss artist who died a century before he was born? The unbelievable biography of Osamu Tezuka, GOD OF MANGA, and how he led Japanese comics to dominance on both sides of the Pacific! And finally, the DIRECT MARKET, and how it led to a creative revolution in comics -- economic challenges -- and can it survive the threat from DIGITAL PIRACY? FINAL ISSUE! - July 2011.
