Over 1200 pages long with more than 9,000 new entries, this is a bibliography of articles and books on all aspects of comic and cartoon art including comic books, comic strips, cartoons, animation, editorial cartoons, newly updated as of the end of 2018. It is based on the format used by John Lent in his ten-volume bibliography. Both the two volume print and the single file electronic book include tens of thousands of citations with links to information on comic book movies, the Charlie Hebdo massacre, the Danish Islam cartoon controversy and other topical matters. In the e-book, many citations are hot-linked to the web publication for ease of use.
