Underground and Independent Comics, Comix, and Graphic Novels: Volume 1 covers major works from North America and Europe, beginning with the first underground comix from the 1950’s and continuing through to modern sequential artists. Volume 2 expands on the debut database by offering an additional 100,000 pages of important, rare, and hard-to-find works, scholarly writings, and more. It adds extensive coverage of the pre-Comics Code era horror, crime, romance, and war comics that fueled the backlash leading to the advent of the Comics Code.
