Who says comics aren't real literature?

Post by Shadywhisk » Wed Dec 01, 2004 12:30 am

I've found a cool book that I'm giving my brother for the holidays. :read It's titled Give Our Regards to the Atomsmashers: Writers on Comics. As you can guess by the title, it has several essays by various writers about the impact comics had on them.

Just thought I'd mention it in case anyone was interested in checking it out. I know I'm going to read it before wrapping it up! ;)

(Have I mentioned how much I adore all of these smilies????)

But the book itself isn't a comic, right?

No, it's a hard back novel-length book. I got it at Barnes & Noble.

Here is some more info about the book, Kurtlover. :) I must confess that I haven't heard of many of the writers, but the essays I've read are very good.
