Main description:

Long before manga took the American comics market by storm, Scott McCloud (Understanding Comics, Making Comics) combined the best ideas from manga, alternative comics, and superheroes into Zot!—a frenetic and innovative exploration of comics' potential that helped set the stage for McCloud's later groundbreaking theoretical work.

Zachary T. Paleozogt lives in "the far-flung future of 1965," a utopian Earth of world peace, robot butlers, and flying cars. Jenny Weaver lives in an imperfect world of disappointment and broken promises—the Earth we live in. Stepping across the portals to each other's worlds, Zot and Jenny's lives will never be the same again.

Now, for the first time since its original publication more than twenty years ago, every one of McCloud's pages from the black and white series has been collected in this must-have commemorative edition for aficionados to treasure and new fans to discover.

Includes never-before-seen artwork and extensive commentary by Scott McCloud

Review quote:

“[A] wonderful collection…highly recommended.”

Review quote:

“[D]elightful...Zot! has aged surprisingly well, and now it seems prescient in being strongly influenced by Japanese comics well before manga was common in America.”

Review quote:

“[S]ure to be a treasure trove for McCloud fans or lovers of intelligent retro comics action.”

Review quote:

“A brilliant superhero series that still holds up to the test of time 20 years later.”

Review quote:

“Essential...a stunning revelation...the packaging alone is fantastic...It’s long past time for a critical re-appraisal of these tender, delicate, overwhelmingly ambitious early stories, and what they tried to accomplish as well as what they actually did accomplish.”

Review quote:

“Honestly, comics just don’t get any better than this.”

Review quote:

“McCloud is one of the major talents in the comics world.”

Review quote:

“One of comics’ best written, and most overlooked, titles...a stylish, often light-hearted, and yet dramatically compelling comic.”

Review quote:

“Shows that [McCloud] is not only an avid student and chronicler of comics, but an incredibly talented cartoonist...illuminates McCloud’s genius as he blends Eastern and Western comics influences into a mesmerizing superhero tale.”

Review quote:

“The classic retrofit of the post-war comics gestalt.”

Review quote:

“Thoroughly charming...the series’s thoughtful joy spills over into its airy, bouncy design sense.”

Review quote:

“To suggest I was enthralled by McCloud’s pop commentary about hope and beauty in the world would be to embrace understatement…well crafted, entertaining and even challenging…9 out of 10.”

Review quote:

“With a smart-looking trim size and a sharp design that includes cover flaps and a stark-but-beautiful cover, Zot!: The Complete Black and White Collection is an admirable addition to one’s bookshelf.”

Review quote:

“Zot! is a remarkable graphic narrative. ”

Review quote:
