Overview

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

The DC Chronicle Year by Year traces DC's fascinating story: the company's beginnings as National Allied Publications in the 1934, and its subsequent change to Detective Comics, Inc. in 1937. The book details all the major DC publishing landmarks and more, displayed clearly, month by month.

Highlighting the debuts of 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 Chronicle Year by Year follows the characters' foray into the real world through TV series and blockbuster movies.

Features original cover art by well-known DC artist Ryan Sook and a foreword by Paul Levitz, who was president of DC Comics from 2002 - 2009.

I got this as a gift for my boyfriend for Christmas. He absolutely loves it. He has had an absolute love for Batman and this gives tons of information on Batman and every villain and hero in the D.C. universe. And its fun to see how far they progressed as characters as well as to see how they remained the same. The comic book industry has been around for a long time and seems like it will stay around for even longer.

A wonderfully accessible volume, tracing the development of our most enduring and powerful modern myths. Superman and his fellow DC heroes are among the most recognizable characters in the world, and this book can help a curious reader to quickly get a grasp of how they got that way. An excellent item for the fan or the merely curious.
