    《世界漫画指南》(英)蒂姆·皮尔彻、布拉德·布鲁克斯。 虽然是按国家和时间来介绍,但是也许可能有更吸引人的讲述方式?虽然这么多这么多杂志都停刊了或者将停刊,但是存在的时候都是有价值与意义的。人生也是一样吧,别只是期待永远。

    I would say that this is a good book to read for comics enthusiasts(like myself) as it gives an overview of nearly every countries comics history. Obviously though,if you dont need/want to know about that kind of stuff it would be pretty boring
