Read full description of the books:
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 by...Tony Isabella.
I'm also unclear on what criteria was used. There is at least one comic the author says he's never read. There is another he says is awful. One book that made the cut is an informational comic on Crohn's Disease.
The book also doesn't really address that it would be difficult to read some of these comics. Much of what is included from the 1940s to 1960s are hard to find and/or very expensive. Most of it hasn't been reprinted, and there is nothing to tell you what has.
All that being said, this is an enjoyable book to leaf through. Isabella doesn't feel the need to hit all the landmarks, so that frees up space for less well-known selections. I've read of lot of this kind of thing over the years, but nearly every page had something I had never seen before.
