DC Comics: A Visual History


DC Comics: A Visual History ($50) by Matthew K. Manning, Alex Irvine, Alan Cowsill and Daniel Wallace traces DC’s fascinating story: the company’s beginnings as National Allied Publications in the 1934, and its subsequent change to Detective Comics, Inc. in 1937.

The 376 page hardcover book details all the major DC publishing landmarks and more, displayed clearly, month by month.

Highlighting the debuts of iconic super heroes like Superman and Batman, the geniuses that invented them, and the real-life events, like the Vietnam War, the atom bomb, and the Space Race, that shaped the atmosphere of the times, DC Comics: A Visual History follows the characters’ foray into the real world through TV series and blockbuster movies.

This updated and expanded edition will be released on September 15, 2014 and includes 16 new pages to cover 2010-2014 featuring a new slipcase design along with two new prints packed inside.
