Review: Superheroes!: Capes, Cowls, and the Creation of Comic Book Culture

Superheroes!: Capes, Cowls, and the Creation of Comic Book Culture Superheroes!: Capes, Cowls, and the Creation of Comic Book Culture by Laurence Maslon
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Big surprise--I enjoyed a book about comics. Who saw that coming? Maslon's discussion and history of comics is pretty decent and filled with quotes from many of the different key players in comics. If you get the audiobook, some of those quotes are actually taken from the people who said them and it's not just a narrator. This book was released in tandem with the PBS documentary that came out last year or so. It's a solid history of superhero comics that covers the major points and even some that you didn't realized were particularly significant. For anyone looking to wrap his or her head around the history, Maslon's book is a good text to start with.
