We field through a lot of press releases. It would be easy to just copy and paste every one of them, but that wouldn't be fair to you guys. However, if one passes our inbox that looks interesting, then we'll pass it along. Today, that happened with a new book about Hellboy. Sequart has released The Mignolaverse: Hellboy and the Comics Art of Mike Mignola which looks pretty good.
Sequart's latest contribution to comics scholarship is The British Invasion: Alan Moore, Neil Gaiman, Grant Morrison, and the Invention of the Modern Comic Book Writer. This is a subject that has been touched on in the past in various outlets for comics journalism, but never comprehensively. The British Invasion looks to be a serious effort to not only tell the story of the early careers of these three writers, but the lasting effect they have had on the comics medium.
