This anniversary poster book celebrates 75 years of the most famous comics in history by showcasing 500 of their most memorable covers - including 100 full-size posters, ready-to-frame. Arranged in chronological order, each poster is a milestone in DC comics history, and possibly in cultural history, too...

DC Comics 75th Anniversary Poster Book celebrates the cover art work of DC Comics comic books. From the first appearance of Superman in Action Comics #1 - easily the most sought-after comic of all time - the introduction of iconic Batman, and firm favourites like Wonder Woman and Shazam, the unsettling The House of Mystery and Strange Adventures, or Mr. District Attorney, the relative innocence of Falling in Love, to more adult themes that addressed social concerns like Green Arrow’s sidekick Speedy being a heroin addict, The Killing Joke, Preacher, Alan Moore’s ground-breaking, taboo-shattering Swamp Thing, Ronin, Sandman, Angel and the Ape, 100 Bullets, each of the covers featured is a landmark in introducing recognizable characters to us.

This book includes 100 posters which are ready to be framed. On the back of each poster is additional information about the cover (including original publication date. artists name and general information) as well as images of other covers from the same series.

An interesting collection for those with even the mildest interest in American comic books, but for hardcore collectors this is an essential purchase.
