Abstract
Now updated, expanded, and available in paperback—the definitive chronicle of DC’s celebrated characters and their talented creators! In the nearly 70 years since the creation of the first superheroes, DC’s legendary team of artists, writers, and editors have developed, refined, and extended the reach of their comic book characters. DC Comics: A Celebration of the World’s Favorite Comic Book Heroes celebrates the remarkable history of America’s leading comic book publisher. Packed with 650 dazzling, full-color illustrations, here is a mesmerizing account of DC’s growth, tracing the complex genealogies of its legendary characters and describing the behind-the-scenes dynamics that influenced its stories. It also features dozens of personal interviews with the artists and writers who provided the creative genius for DC’s classic characters and their amazing adventures.
This updated paperback edition sports a brand-new cover by legendary comic book artist Alex Ross, as well as new chapters on the acclaimed graphic novels Kingdom Come and The Dark Knight Strikes Again. Readers will also find brand-new material on Superman’s wedding; the movies Batman Forever and Batman & Robin; the Smallville television show; WildStorm comics; and many other exciting comics including JLA, Green Arrow, and Preacher.
Filled with comic book artwork, conceptual sketches, and original character designs; scenes from animated cartoons, movie serials and features, television shows, and Broadway musicals; superhero toys, games, comic collectibles, trading cards, and panels from graphic novels—this incredible chronicle is the perfect reference for fans of popular history, art, comics, and everything in between!
