Bohemians edited by Paul Buhle is a comic anthology history of the bohemian movement. The book covers about a hundred year time period and about dozen or so important figures.
The artists, musicians, performers, and writers covered are individually fascinating. Seeing how they influenced each other and the movement is also fascinating.
But the presentation falls flat. Each section is done by a different artist. Transitioning from one style to another style of art and story telling while trying to take in copious amounts of information is tricky at best. Here though, there is so much text that the artwork is crowded out.
I struggled to read this book despite my interest in the subject. It managed maybe two pages at a go, sometimes less.
