    Impressive collection!

    DC Comics Posters, features 100 ready-to-frame comic book covers, old and new, by Robert Schnakenberg, who includes commentary on the back of each poster, along with a few related cover images. Many have a Lichtenstein style pop art sensibility, such as the many proto-feminist images of Wonder Woman, Batgirl, and various romance comics. A favorite of mine is the one where Lois Lane, gifted super strength — for one issue at least — flies away with a surprised Superman in her capable arms. Just in time for a blockbuster Batman movie out this summer, featuring Catwoman, you will find iconic images of both of those characters. The book includes the epic Dark Knight Returns cover, along with other iconic covers, such as the Death of Superman issue. There are several posters of Green Lantern, too. And with just-announced mega-films of the Justice League coming (a la the Avengers) — with a Wonder Woman movie on its way, too — I think that DC Comics Posters will remain as enjoyable and hip as it is bold and visually dynamic.
