Journey Into HISTORY: 10 Books on History of Comics
With more and more graphic novels on shelves and tablets of comics readers worldwide, there's also been a boom in books about comics—from examining their history to showing how to make them. So far, has been an outstanding year for nonfiction books about comics. Here are some new and upcoming books that should have a place on the shelf of every serious comics enthusiast. A soup-to-nuts guide to making comics, from the ins and outs of collaboration to using social media to promote yourself. A must for every would-be comics makers library—and probably for every working pro as a brush up. Gravett is perhaps the most knowledgeable and congenial of comics scholars, and in this overview of comics he covers the last 50 years of international comics history and artistic development with the sure-footed understanding of a graphic Neil DeGrasse Tyson. Gravett covers both form—the panel experiments of Chris Ware and web comics experiments of Jason Shiga—and content—the autobiographical comics of Lynda Barry and storytelling of David Mazzuchelli.
For many years comic books skulked in the shadows of culture, considered juvenile at best, or outright dangerous at worst. Only in the last few.

Comic Books For Beginners
Okay, so let's be real. Amid the hundreds of articles about what happened in last night's Arrowverse installment or what comic is coming out next Wednesday, you clicked on this list. Congratulations, you're a creative type, and it's probably driving you mad. You're entering an industry packed to the gills with independent creators and a million unpublished ideas. But it's nothing to fret about. The comic book industry has thrived for decades on the backs of independent, self-published creators. Without them, we wouldn't have world-changing ideas, such as giant mutated turtles who mastered ninjitsu, and without independent creators making their names, we wouldn't have their eventual progression to the big leagues, where the work they did revamping forgotten and underutilized characters have spawned a multimedia franchise in the form the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Newsarama Comics. Last week's release of Sean Howe's Marvel Comics: The Untold Story was a reminder of the many wonderful prose books dedicated to the history of the comic book industry out there, telling the stories of the men and women behind the stories that we're all so familiar with. That one's not only comprehensive, but it actually tells the story of comics as a comic! So, we're sticking to prose only. For those who want to start compiling their library reading list, here are ten of the best. Got a comment? Depending on your feelings about Grant Morrison, this is either the ultimate pop-history of the superhero genre or a book that spends far too much time thinking about the sociological implications of Superman and Batman.
