Description

New printing with text corrections, even better binding, and enhanced cover durability-so if you already own the first printing, you’ll love this one even more!

Bill Schelly authors the volume on the 1950s era of Marilyn Monroe and Elvis Presley, with a year-by-year account of the most significant publications, notable creators, and impactful trends, including: the rise of the great EC ‘New Trend’ titles (Tales of the Crypt, Weird Science), Harvey Kurtzman’s Mad, and Carl Barks’ classic work on Donald Duck and Uncle Scrooge!

The re-tooling of the Flash in Showcase #4 that kicked off the Silver Age of Comics, and the introduction of DC’s Martian Manhunter, Adam Strange and the new Green Lantern! Plus the return of the Timely heroes Captain America, the Human Torch and Sub-Mariner, and the birth of Joe Simon and Jack Kirby’s Fighting American and The Fly!
