by Fred Van Lente and Ryan Dunlavey

colored by Adam Guzowski

The inspiring, infuriating, and utterly insane story of comics, graphic novels, and manga  - as a comic book! Fred Van Lente and I teamed up again to give our irreverent-but-accurate take on the true behind-the-scenes history of everyone's favorite art form.


Published in two volumes from IDW
