Description

Truth, Justice and the Superhero Comic, limited to just 1000 copies worldwide, tells of the history of superhero comic books from William Hogarth in the early 18th Century through to Superman in the 1930's until today's morally conflicted anti-heroes. As superheroes have spread from the pulpy pages of nickel comics to the big screen, they have evolved from simple all-American heroes to tortured, complicated characters reflecting the dreams, desires, and fears of modern society. The evolution of an art-form that has proved remarkably adaptable and enduring. Filled with classic images from the Comic greats as well as biographies of some of the most influential minds in the industry like Stan Lee, William Marston, Jim Steranko, and Frank Miller, Truth Justice and the Superhero Comic goes far beyond the superficial escapist fantasies and probes the forces that have shaped the characters into legends. Giving the inside stories of characters such as The Incredible Hulk, Spiderman, Batman, The X-Men, and dozens more echoes of Superhero past and present and the art that continues to evolve and innovate even today.
