The audiobook is fantastic, adding snippets of the PBS television series this book is a companion to.
This overview is great, looking at the large overview of comic books from their inception in the 1930s through the early 2010s.
There is still some overlooking of the female characters while many in-depth looks at the male characters (hey! there are some women in there!) but, overall, this is a really good book that balances well between giving the facts and providing entertainment.
