There's a great book to be written about the late 80s and early 90s in comics, but unfortunately, this is not that book. It never really defines the era, it's horribly laid out (it looks like an ugly comic from the 90s) and it is jumbled. The author goes back and forth in time, jumps between subjects, and repeats certain points incessantly. Horribly disappointing.
