DC Comics: A Visual History (Updated Edition)

Alan Cowsill, Alex Irvine, Matthew Manning

Discover the world behind the DC Universe!

For more than 70 years, DC Comics has been entertaining children and adults alike. Here, now newly updated and expanded, is the chronological account of the adventures of both the characters and the company that created them.

DC Comics: A Visual History traces DC’s fascinating story- the company’s beginnings as National Allied Publications in 1934, and its subsequent change to Detective Comics, Inc. in 1937. The book details all the major DC publishing landmarks and more, displayed clearly and with amazing detail. It highlights the debuts of key characters like Superman and Batman, the geniuses that invented them, and the real-life events (like the Vietnam War, the atom bomb, the Space Race) that shaped the atmosphere of the times

DC Comics: A Visual History also follows the characters' foray into the real world through TV series and blockbuster movies. DC Comics: A Visual History is a vibrant, visually spectacular history of DC Comics and an exciting, century-spanning voyage through seven thrilling decades.

Updated and expanded edition to cover 2010-2014 plus two new prints.
