DC Comics: Visual History Review
I’m a big comic book and super hero fan, so picking this book up was a no brainer. “A Visual History” is packed with colorful art from throughout all the Comic Book Ages that DC existed in, but this book was also a very interesting account of DC’s start in the industry to where they are today, but it doesn’t end there. A Visual History is a month-by-month chronicle of DC’s major and minor publications rather than a yearly one, and includes all the most important events of their 75 year history.
I’m really impressed with everything DK Publications has included in this massive book. Expect to find a huge amount of details about the Golden Age, Silver Age and Modern Age of DC’s place in the comic book industry. The publishers of this book didn’t just include the largest facts, but the small ones too, which is coo because I like to know all the little things too. Everything in this book was equally interesting, but another cool fact about this book is that it was written by a team of top comic book historians that used a variety of sources to produce this book that included top collections, DC vaults, and tons of other people’s collections.
On top of that “A Visual History” comes in a slipcase, but more importantly it looks even better as a display on a coffee table or on the end of a shelf, which really adds to the room. Furthermore, the book also comes with two prints of Batman and Superman that are almost just as big as the book itself, which makes for a very nice extra.
Overall if you’re a comic book fan or comic book collector then this book is a must own, and if that’s the case I’m sure that you will have just as much fun reading this book as I did. There’s just so much you can learn about the history, key issues, and the mythology of DC Comics.
