Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Michael Barrier (born June 15, 1940) is an American animation historian. Barrier was the founder and editor of Funnyworld, the first magazine exclusively devoted to comics and animation. It began as a contribution to the CAPA-Alpha amateur press association. Starting in 1970 it expanded to being a magazine of general circulation that eventually had a printrun of several thousand before ceasing in the early 1980s. He also was an early champion of the work of comic book artist Carl Barks, in a period when comic book fandom was mostly devoted to the celebration of super heroes and tended to denigrate funny animal comics. Barrier serialized a bibliography of Barks' work in Funnyworld and in 1968 contributed an extensive essay analyzing Barks' work to the seventh issue of the Thompsons' pioneering fanzine Comic Art.show more
