In 2012, Matt Madden created a concise overview of the history of American comics, its trends, subjects and obsessions, using only six panels, and featuring references to Dick Tracy, R. Crumb, Watchmen and more.
French comics scholar and cartoonist Nicolas Labarre has now updated this strip, expanding it with two panels. This was necessary to include newspaper strips and new cartoonists whow ork for young adults. And if you didn’t know the original, you’d never believe those two weren’t there to begin with.
And once more, hello again.
