The Times has been writing about comic book heroes since November 1940, when an 80-foot-tall Superman balloon dazzled crowds at the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade (“Waves of murmured astonishment, screams and squeals of delight washed own the long lines… as Superman came over the horizon“). Since the early days of Superman and fellow caped crusader Batman, the comic book industry has evolved and exploded.
“History of Comic Books” is their largest 12″ x 15″ theme book ever, containing Times features, profiles, reviews and magazine articles, plus 28 obituaries of key stars and comic book creators. It is bursting with Times reprinted pages about superheroes on the big screen, on TV and even on Broadway. Comes with optional personalization on the cover. An epic gift for movie fans and comic book lovers from Metropolis to Gotham City. Made in the U.S.A.
