Select Reviews:

   The following list makes no attempt at completeness; it is by far the most incomplete section of the bibliography and will likely remain that way.
   100s of reviews are not listed here. Numerous reviews can be found by searching the web, and many others are quoted on the back of DC's collections. 
   Some short reviews are listed in Select Mentions above. NOTE: I stopped adding to this section in 2006.

Full-Length Analytical Essays on DC:
   The best discussion of DC's work as a whole is Dan Raeburn's The Imp 1 (1997); the most detailed look at a 
   single DC story is
'A Re-Reader's Guide to David Boring' in Comic Art 7 (Winter 2005).
