I pre-ordered this and Amazon just sent me a copy, even though their site still says, "Not Yet Released."
Masters of the Comic Book Universe
This informal history of the comic book chronicles, largely in their own words, the lives and careers of the artists and writers who created the most significant and memorable comic books and graphic novels. Stretching from Will Eisner, who started his work in the industry in 1936, to Marjane Satrapi, whose latest graphic novel was published last year, 11 comic book masters are discussed, including Art Spiegelman, Neil Gaiman, Stan Lee, Dwayne McDuffie, Kyle Baker, and Ho Che Anderson. Amazing stories of how these artists and writers fell in love with the genre and built up their careers are coupled with never-before-disclosed anecdotes and previously unpublished self-portraits that will surprise even the most knowledgeable fans.
