    I spent sixteen years hating this book without reading it. and I finally read, it, and fine, it's actually really fun and charming. I thought it was just going to be Chip Kidd clipping panels so they become unreadable (certainly he's guilty of this vice in his books on Schulz and Cole), and, sure, he does that, but these contextless panels would be impossible to understand even if you could read all the words, so it's not so bad.

And the whole thing serves as a nice introduction to a weird slice of the Golden Age—the properties DC owned or (Fawcett, Quality) eventually acquired. It's not "just DC", which would make organic sense, or DC + All-American, would would also be fine, but rather an amalgamation of unrelated characters threaded together by the legal trivia that the rights are all held in common. The result is hardly a comprehensive catalogue of all that's worthy from the Golden Age, but it's not bad; it's like half the battle, say. But it's fun, and the art, as you might expect, is often great. Look at a page a day, and it's a year well spent. I gorged, and that worked too. A question: Why is the Guardian relegated to one skulking background appearance, not even mentioned in the explicatory text (Sept. 26). Look for him in the index in vain!

    Had this book for ages and showed it to friends who were into superheros and cartoons. Had a lot of older stuff that is hard to find today.

    A dab of trivia and a dash of artistry. DC acquired individual creations and brought to life superheroes like Alan Scott (1st Green Lantern), Wonderwoman, Martian Manhunter, Aquaman, Hawkman, Plastic Man; to name a few. Vin Sullivan, publisher and editor of Detective comics (formerly National Allied Publications) gave an opportunity to Bob Kane. Alas! He created the caped crusader in the form of Batman. This book bears rereading. If Science is also an art, there will be fearless artists and writer A dab of trivia and a dash of artistry.

This book bears rereading. If Science is also an art, there will be fearless artists and writers whom are never afraid to innovate or fail, never afraid to admit every bad decisions made; come up with what would be the next world's greatest invention or history.

    This is an informative and incredibly gorgeous piece of work, and among other things, the best collection of Mac Raboy art I know of. Chip Kidd should be paid to just crank out stuff like this once a year. Which, I guess, he is.

    This was an absolute pleasure to read and flip through as you discovered the way the comic books used to be.
