Welcome to the Camp Age, when spies liked their wars cold and their women warm, good guys beat bad guys with a pun and a punch, and Batman shook a mean cape.
Hero-A-Go-Go celebrates the camp craze of the Swinging Sixties, when just about everyone - the teens of Riverdale, an ant and a squirrel, even the President of the United States - was a super-hero or a secret agent.
Michael Eury takes you through that coolest cultural phenomenon with this lively collection of nostalgic essays, histories, and theme song lyrics of classic 1960s characters like Captain Action, Herbie the Fat Fury, Captain Nice, Atom Ant, Scooter, ACG’s Nemesis, Dell’s super-Frankenstein and Dracula, the ‘split!’ Captain Marvel, and others!
