Making his debut in 1938 in Action Comics, Superman was the first of a series of superheroes that informed and tracked American life through the war years and the counterculture to today's blockbuster movies and graphic novels. Featuring more than 500 colour comic book panels, covers, sketches and photographs, this book examines the phenomenon of this American art form, drawing on interviews with key figures in its history, including Stan Lee and Carmine Infantino.
