With a whopping 720 pages and a scale of 29 x 39.5 cm, the new addition to our bigger, bolder book collection, 75 Years of DC Comics: The Art of Modern Mythmaking has been gaining a lot of attention since it arrived in store this morning...
More than 40,000 comic books later, in honor of the publisher’s 75th anniversary, TASCHEN has produced the single most comprehensive book on DC Comics, in an XL edition even Superman might have trouble lifting. More than 2,000 images—covers and interiors, original illustrations, photographs, film stills, and collectibles—are reproduced using the latest technology to bring the story lines, the characters, and their creators to vibrant life as they’ve never been seen before. Telling the tales behind the tomes is 38-year DC veteran Paul Levitz, whose in-depth essays trace the company’s history, from its pulp origins through to the future of digital publishing. This most certainly is a book to drool over.
The book is £135 and comes with a beautifully illustrated box.
