Remarkable 20th Century History of Comic Strips
Would you consider the audio edition of Peanuts, Pogo, and Hobbes to be better than the print version?
Bob Neufeld's narration of "Peanuts, Pogo, and Hobbes" makes me feel like I'm actually listening to the voice of George Lockwood, telling me the fascinating history of his career.
What other book might you compare Peanuts, Pogo, and Hobbes to and why?
This audiobook is incomparable. No other narrative fully recounts how meaningfully comic strips have affected American history.
Which scene was your favorite?
I most enjoyed Lockwood sharing the overall narratives of his favorite comic strips, usually adventure strips, such as "Terry and the Pirates" and "Dick Tracy". I also enjoyed Lockwood recounted how the popularity of adventure strips transitioned into gag strips.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
I wish there were more books like this, but this is the only one, which in its own way, makes it a real treasure.
Any additional comments?
For anyone seeking to learn the history of comic strips, or interested in becoming a comic strip artist, this book is for you. It's absolutely brilliant. I've listened to it many times. R.I.P. Mr. Lockwood, and thank you for this great book.
