Discover the world behind the DC Universe! For more than 70 years, DC comics has been entertaining children and adults alike. Here, for the first time, is the chronological account of the adventures of both the characters and the company that created them.
DC Chronicle traces DC's fascinating story: the company's beginnings as National Allied Publications in the 1934, and its subsequent change to Detectivce Comics, Inc. in 1937. The book details all the major DC publishing landmarks and more, displayed clearly, month by month.
It highlights the debuts of key characters like Superman and Batman, the geniuses that invented them, and the real-life events-like the Vietnam War, the atom bomb, the Space Race-that shaped the atmosphere of the times. DC Chronicle also follows the characters' foray into the real world through TV series and blockbuster movies. DC Chronicle is a vibrant, visually spectacular history of DC Comics and an exciting, century-spanning voyage through seven thrilling decades.
Original cover art is by well-known DC artist Ryan Sook.
