    1. Let's get the obvious criticisms out of the way. The title is misleading. These are not 1000 "essential" or "best" comics, but a highly subjective cross section of seven decades of comic books. There are a few glaring ommissions, and the author includes far more Archie books from the '80s and '90s than almost anyone else would. You will also notice that of the 1000 comic books Tony Isabella thinks you must read, about 20 are written byTony Isabella.I'm also unclear on what criteria was used. The [...]


    2. I don't think that a book is the best format for this information.Mr. Isabella provides a list of his favorite comics broken down by decade. Each section starts with a brief synopsis of what was happening in the world at the time and how this affected the comics that were published. This is all well and good. However the information provided is along the lines of what one would expect from a simple blog post.Each comic presented as a "must read" for the decade is accompanied by an image of the c [...]


    3. To be honest, when I picked up 1000 Comic Books You Must Read at my local library, it seemed to be a glorified coffee table book. I didn’t really think it would have much information that I didn’t already know (Yes, pride goes before a fall), but I just couldn’t resist all of those color photographs of famous comic book covers. I figured some would make me feel nostalgic for the Silver Era and some would remind me of some of the great first appearances of my favorite characters. To quote G [...]


    4. This retrospective isn't necessarily a resource as it is a reflection of one fanboy's journey from comic book loving child to professional within the comics industry. It isn't bad per se but if you aren't actually inclined to read all the comics he recommends, this will do you little good beyond giving a limited historical perspective on the industry as a whole.



    5. Lots of good comics in a lot of different genres over the decades. I've been out of the comic collecting hobby for a few years now, but this made me tempted to get back in. I collected comics not out of a desire of completeness, but because I actually like reading comics, It's obvious the writer of this book does as well.[return][return]There are a few flaws that kept me from giving this a four and a half star rating instead of five. The first is that several entries end abruptly as the last lin [...]


    6. His choices were subjective. He admitted to not reading one of Carl Barks' Disney comics but including it because he liked the cover. Although the tidbits he offered per comic could be interesting, he should have provided more information. Not worth the money. Even as a novice, there were titles I've seen on numerous top comic lists that weren't included here. He did include some underground comics and award-winning graphic novels.


    7. I read this book while I was doing research for my own book about comic books and I found it very fun and useful. The book has tons of color cover images and short descriptions of each comic. Tony also gives you longer descriptions on each decade and those very important comic book issues. A great book any comic book fan will appreciate.


    8. This book is really fun starting with issues from the 1930s all the way through the 1960s. Then it starts to peter off a little more each decade after that (like underground comix given only a few shout outs etc). Some glaring oversights, but also some really interesting comics showcasing the different eras. Worth checking out from the library, but maybe not owning.


    9. I was a bit leery of this one originally, but it turned out to be fantastic. Of corse there were comics thatI didn't agree with, overall the auther was right n the money.


    10. I would have preferred less comics and more information on each one, but it's still a wonderful way to populate a list of comics you want to read.



    11. It got interesting in the end when modern Batman and graphic novels began to appear.Wouldn't recommended this to anyone that isn't a comic book's fan.



    12. Fun to read, but points off for bad copy editing (a few paragraphs that cut off mid sentence) and the inclusion of an EMBARRASSING amount of his own work.
