I just got my copy of the newly release graphic novel "Pinball: A Graphic History of the Silver Ball" by Jon Chad and holy hell I couldn't be more excited to share this! 

Jon Chad does for pinball what Scott McCloud did for comic books with "Understanding Comics". He leverages graphic art to tell the history of pinball, starting in 1776 with Bagatelle in King Louis XVI of France's court to Roger Sharpe's Manhattan courtroom appearance, to the 90's boom, bust and modern day pinball. If you are fan of comics, don't miss this. If you are a pinsider... don't miss this!

My library got a copy, now lots of folks can borrow this interesting book. This will appeal to teens, young adult readers and us pin-nuts. The art is really very clever.
