  • TwoMorrows Publishing presents Marvel Comics in the 1980s, the third volume in Pierre Comtois’ heralded series, which covers Marvel’s final historical phase.

    The 1980s saw Stan Lee’s retreat to the West Coast, Jim Shooter’s rise and fall as editor-in-chief, the twin triumphs of Frank Miller and John Byrne, the challenge of independent publishers, and the weakening hold of the Comics Code Authority that led to the company’s creative downfall. Comics such as the Chris Claremont/John Byrne X-Men, Frank Miller’s Daredevil, the new wave of dark heroes such as Wolverine and the Punisher, and more are all covered, in analytic detail and often irreverent manner.

    The 1980s represented years of upheaval in the comics industry, so expect a bumpy ride in the 1980s decade that marked the beginning of the end of Marvel Comics as you knew them!
