I bought this for my brother one year for his birthday and read it before I gave it to him. It's a very interesting look at how comic books are shaped by the spirituality and faith of those involved in creating them. If you think about it, the majority of mainstream comic books revolve around the classic "good vs. evil" plot, which of course can be seen in all major religions.

I found this book very insightful and interesting, and enjoyed reading the author's views not only exploring how faith and spirituality shape our comic heroes but also our views on society as we grow up with these beloved characters. A good resource for comic book fans as well as readers interested in exploring how personal faith shapes the world in which we live.
