Taschen - 75 Years of DC Comics: The Art of Modern Mythmaking.
The crown jewel in any comics fan’s library
In 1935, DC Comics founder Major Malcolm Wheeler-Nicholson published New Fun No. 1, the first comic book with all-new, original material—at a time when comic books were mere repositories for the castoffs of the newspaper strips. What was initially considered to be disposable media for children was well on its way to becoming the mythology of our time—the 20th century’s answer to Atlas or Zorro. More than 40,000 comic books later, in honor of the publisher’s 75th anniversary, TASCHEN has produced the single most comprehensive book on DC Comics. More than 2,000 images—covers and interiors, original illustrations, photographs, film stills, and collectibles—are reproduced using the latest technology to bring the story lines, the characters, and their creators to vibrant life as they’ve never been seen before. Telling the tales behind the tomes is 38-year DC veteran Paul Levitz, whose in-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 this an invaluable reference for any comic book fan.
"What began as an historical project . . . now may qualify as a history-making one." —The Los Angeles Times
"In the spirit of total honesty, I have to confess that this is fucking amazing. Paul Levitz is not just a scribe for hire; he was the publisher at DC comics for a good, long time, and he gives an insider's view of the behind-the-scenes events that helped shape the art of modern mythmaking. He is generous with his praise of individuals and even competitors, which saves this project from becoming a one-sided story by bearing the name of a single publisher on its masthead. After the overwhelming success of this book, I can't imagine that a Marvel book is far behind, and if it is even 10% as good as this book is, it'll be worthwhile. Thanks, Paul, for sharing the greatest love letter ever written to my favorite hobby." Forcesofgeek.com
