Description

Updated and expanded edition from DK, with 16 new pages to cover 2010–2014! Featuring a new slipcase design along with two NEW prints packed inside.

The most comprehensive chronological history of DC Comics every published. The milestone events in the history of DC Comics are explored and explained as they happened, month by month, from the company's inception in 1934 as National Allied Publications to the present, including the first appearances of key characters, such as Batman and Superman, landmark moments, and appearances on celluloid. This updated edition is packed with original comic book art, including high-quality prints of classic covers and full-page reproductions of key storylines.

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.

Foreword by Paul Levitz, former president of DC Comics (2002 – 2009.)

Age 12 to adult.
