The Golden Age of DC Comics

Vor drei Jahren brachte der Taschen Verlag zum 75sten Geburtstag von DC Comics einen Monsterband zur Geschichte des Verlags raus, jetzt bauen sie daraus eine nochmal ausführlichere Buchserie, deren erster Band sich genauer mit dem Golden Age von DC beschäftigt. Must Have. „The Golden Age of DC Comics“ erscheint nächste Woche, die Folgebände „Silver Age“ und „Bronze Age“ im Mai bzw. Juni. (via Unfug)

The single most comprehensive book on the subject, this volume traces the company's first decades, from its pulp origins up to the comic book burnings of the McCarthy ’50s in more than 400 pages bursting with comics, art, comics, photographs, and more comics. Also included is an exclusive interview with legendary artist Joe Kubert!

About the series: TASCHEN's series on DC Comics explores the origins of comics’ most enduring legends and the behind-the-scenes stories of the men and women who created them, era by era. Expanded from the Eisner Award–winning XL book, 75 Years of DC Comics, this new series hits the shelf at a reader-friendly size with essays updated by author Paul Levitz and more than 1,000 new images across five volumes. Thousands of covers and interiors, original illustrations, photographs, film stills, and collectibles have been reproduced to bring the story lines, the characters, and their creators to vibrant life, making this an invaluable reference for comics fans.
