The Golden Age of comics began in 1938 when Superman appeared in the first issue of Action Comics, and the superhero genre was born. Paul Levitz, past president of DC Comics, takes us back to that era in this oversized treasury, culled from Taschen's gigantic Eisner Award winner 75 Years of DC Comics. From his opening interview with writer, artist, and teacher Joe Kubert, Levitz profiles the heroes at DC—including Green Lantern, the Flash, Hawkman, Batman, and Wonder Woman—and the real-life characters who created them, with comic pages, production art, photos, and two-page enlargements over 18 inches across.
