"This entertaining and enlightening history of comics, from The Yellow Kid to Zits, is written by a former newspaper reporter and editor who witnessed the golden age first-hand. It is jam-packed with anecdotes about his career and provides a behind-the-scenes look at the business of syndication. George Lockwood has a unique appreciation of this great American art form."—Brian Walker, author of The Comics: The Complete Collection

"This is a great collection of stuff you probably never knew about the golden age of comics. Lockwood captures the history and the stories behind the strips with wit, warmth, and wisdom. This book is a musthave for any true comics lover!"—Joe Glisson, political cartoonist, Syracuse New Times

"In the mid-1960s, as a college student in Milwaukee, it was a genuine eye-opener for me to hear Professor George Lockwood lecture avidly on comics. Without doubt Lockwood has profoundly affected the course of western culture and civilization!"—Denis Kitchen, cartoonist and founder of Kitchen Sink Press
