Review: The Comic Book Story of Video Games

Paperback: 192 pages
Publisher: Ten Speed Press (October 3, 2017)
Language: Englishvideo games

This book, full of interesting facts and great illustrations, is fantastically fun for all ages. I handed this over to the 7th and 8th grade students in my reading class, as well as showing it to the 3rd-5th grade and high school music students, and they (mostly) agreed that this book was ‘awesome!’ Although this was more about the technology behind the games and the nerdtastic amazingness of the art, the premise of teaching through graphic form instead of ‘normal’ text book type writing grasped the people in my life: students, teachers, and non-school personnel alike.

I give this book a 3.5 out of 5 stars. The visual elements were great but I feel like the writing could have flowed a little better and I would have loved more mention of the artistic side of things.
