The Super Hero Is Born. From the Man of Steel to Wonder Woman
Get the ultimate insights on the heyday of DC Comics. Spanning from 1935 to 1956, more than 600 pages of covers and interiors, original illustrations, photographs, film stills, and ephemera chart the creators, the stories, and the game-changing super heroes Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman.
In June of 1938, Action Comics debuted with a new kind of comic-book character on its cover: a costumed man with two identities, who possessed extraordinary strength and powers — a man able to protect the public when ordinary measures would not do. He was not the first superhero, but the Man of Steel would become the prototype for all superheroes thereafter.
Superman’s story, and those of Batman, Wonder Woman, and hundreds of other DC Comics characters, are all told in The Golden Age of DC Comics. Expanded from the Eisner Award-winning XL book, 75 Years of DC Comics, this edition offers readers the ultimate insight on DC’s first decades, from its pulp origins up to the comic-book burnings of the McCarthy ’50s.
More than 600 pages of covers and interiors, original illustrations, photographs, film stills, and ephemera bring the storylines, the characters, and their creators to vibrant life. Also included is an exclusive interview with legendary artist Joe Kubert.
