Pressestimmen...the vintage photos are most often hilarious...useful and thoroughly entertaining. Coast Book Review ...deals intelligently with this small sub-genre of motion pictures; the introduction provides a brief but fascinating history of the comic strip's evolution... Past Times I would buy two: one for the reference collectio, the other for the staff room. I might also buy a third-for myself. Public Library Quarterly ...unique among comics reference tools...a welcome addition for larger reference collections... VOYA ...a treasure trove of information... the most in-depth revelation of an art-to-film transformation to appear on bookshelves. Movie Collector's World ...useful... Classic Images ...a good job of it. Film Review Annual
