If you're someone who grew up reading comics in the 70s and 80s, be prepared to be hit by the strong nostalgia coming from this book.
Author George Khoury has done an incredible job writing about comics, titles and related events that happened between 1976 to 1986. That's a decades worth of comics, recollection, history condensed into this 240-page paperback. Every page is filled to the brim with text and artwork. It's such and engaging and mesmerising read that I don't mind that he continue writing for other decades.
The book is a collection of stories that talk about the popular titles that were doing really well during the time, and those that had significant impact on the history of comics that lasted till today. There are the Harvey Comics, Archie Comics, KISS, Star Wars, Love and Rockers, Ninja Turtles and of course the superheroes and mutants from Marvel and DC, such as Superman, Spider-man, X-Men, and many other titles. The stories are not just on the comics but also on how they were created.
Additionally, there are also sections that pay tribute to artists such as John Romita, Neal Adams, John Buscema, Jose Luis Garcia Lopez, John Bryne, Dave Cockrun, Jim Starlin and Sal Buscema.
Comic Fever has managed to capture the exciting times that happened to comics in those ten years. Highly recommended to comic readers of that generation.
