For much of the 20th century, pulp comics called lianhuanhua were among the most widely read literature in China. This informational volume explores the rich history of lianhuanhua, from their origins in 1920s Shanghai counterfeit markets to their precipitous decline in the 190s. This book also contains 13 plates from vintage lianhuanhua, and their translations, to give readers a sense of the striking diversity of these books.
