Summary Here, for the very first time, is the complete story of America's favorite heroes and their talented, dedicated creators. In over 100 short and spirited essays, author Les Daniels offers remarkable new anecdotes about the company's history, traces the complex genealogies of the characters, describes the behind-the-scenes politics that influence the stories, and interviews dozens of artists and writers - the real stars of his engrossing tales. The reader can open the book anywhere and become immersed immediately in the fantasy world of high adventure and magical mayhem. This is also a spectacular book for browsing. In gorgeous color, 600 illustrations display an unprecedented celebration of the DC Comics universe. In addition to its hundreds of examples of the finest comic book art (both story pages and stunning covers), working sketches and original character designs, DC Comics enables the reader to rediscover favorite memorabilia and super hero merchandise, to relive action scenes from movies and television, and to see for the first time rare portraits of beloved comic book creators.
