75 Years of DC Comics free pdf This book features super heroes from the Atom to Zatara: 75 years of DC Comics. In 1935, DC Comics founder Major Malcolm Wheeler-Nicholson, published "New Fun No. 1", the first comic book with all-new, all-original comic material-at a time when comic books were mere repositories for the cast-offs of the newspaper strips. What was initially considered to be disposable media for children was well on its way to becoming the mythology of our time - the 20th century's answer to "Atlas" or "Zorro". Over 40,000 comic books later, in honor of the publisher's 75th Anniversary, and from Batman and Wonder Woman to The Sandman and Watchmen, TASCHEN has produced the single most comprehensive book on DC Comics in an XL edition even Superman might have trouble lifting. Over 2000 images-covers and interiors, original illustrations (including Wonder Woman's invisible jet!), photographs, film stills, and collectibles-are reproduced using the latest technology in digital reproduction to bring the storylines, the characters, and their creators to vibrant life as they've never been seen before. Telling the tales behind the tomes is 35-year DC veteran Paul Levitz, whose in-depth essays trace the company's history, from its pulp origins through to the future of digital publishing. Massive foldout timelines and an in-depth appendix including biographies of the artists, writers, editors, publishers, and actors who cast the spell make this an invaluable reference for any comic book fan. You'll find them all here.
