What was initially considered to be disposable media for children was well on its way tobecoming the mythology of our time—the 20th century’s answer to Atlas or Zorro. More than 40,000 comicbooks later, in honor of the publisher’s 75th anniversary, TASCHEN has produced the single mostcomprehensive book on DC Comics, in an XL edition even Superman might have trouble lifting. More than2,000 images—covers and interiors, original illustrations, photographs, film stills, and collectibles—arereproduced using the latest technology to bring the story lines, the characters, and their creators to vibrant lifeas they’ve never been seen before. Telling the tales behind the tomes is 38-year DC veteran Paul Levitz, whosein-depth essays trace the company’s history, from its pulp origins through to the future of digital publishing. Year-by-year timelines that fold out to nearly four feet and biographies of the legends who built DC make thisan invaluable reference for any comic book fan.The 2nd printing of this book is now available. The second printing has a blue cloth cover under the jacketinstead of red. We cannot guarantee which edition will be shipped.Read more
