 Comic Book Encyclopedia -- Ron Goulart   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-30)
This is a big, beautiful, richly illustrated book that covers a lot of territory—the history and development of comic books and graphic novels.
The articles are mostly short, and characters one would have thought important enough for their own entries are reduced to mentions in broader entries.
(Bugs Bunny, for instance, is barely mention in the "Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies" entry.) This is a good, fun book nevertheless, but possibly a better choice for the reader just getting seriously interested in comics, than for the established fan who already has an in-depth knowledge of the field.
