Superheroes!: The History of a Pop-Culture Phenomenon from Ant-Man to Zorro
Superheroes! is the ultimate reference book about the men and women in tights who fight for what's right and the comic book phenomenon that conquered the world. Encompassing early coming books, indie outliers, and the mammoth fictional universes managed by DC and Marvel, Superheroes! chronicles the rise of a distinctly American invention, the modern-day evolution of the myths and legends of old. Superman, Batman, Spider-Man, Iron Man, Wonder Woman, the Flash, Captain America, X-Men, the Justice League and the Avengers-they all represent our greatest hopes, and sometimes our darkest fantasies. Learn all about the creators who have brought them to life: artists like Jack Kirby and Jim Lee, writers like Stan Lee and Alan Moore, actors like Christopher Reeve and Robert Downey Jr., and directors like Tim Burton and Joss Whedon.
