it was amazing
bookshelves: nonfiction, diversity, superhero

This is an excellent companion volume to PBS' "Superheroes" documentary. It chronicles the history of the comic book industry in the US from its nascent beginning to its recent box office domination. Great pictures and chapter segments highlight important events in the industry from the CCA to Gail Simone's "Women in Refrigerators". If you have ever searched for a definitive history of comics in print form, look no further.
