Originally published in France, Jean-Paul Gabilliet's Of Comics and Men: A Cultural History of American Comic Books
documents the rise and development of the American comic book industry from the 1930s to the present. The book intertwines aesthetic issues and critical biographies with the concerns of production, distribution, and audience reception, making it one of the few interdisciplinary studies of the art form.
