Superheroes are bigger and badder than ever, thanks to the revolutionary and glorious Silver Age of comic books.

Rise of the Superheroes − Greatest Silver Age Comic Books and Characters takes you on a fun and wonderfully visual tour of one of the most significant and popular eras of comic book history – 1956 to 1970. The Silver Age redefined and immortalized superheroes as the pop culture titans they are today.

You’ll find The Avengers, Hawkman, Superman, X-Men, Spider Man, The Incredible Hulk, Iron Man and many other unforgettable and formidable characters. Lavishly illustrated with hundreds of color comic book covers and original art, this hardcover book chronicles the new frontier of DC Comics adding revamped characters like The Flash and Green Lantern to its lineup; Marvel’s innovative comics featuring Thor and The Fantastic Four; the pop-art years that saw Batman’s “new look” and the TV series; and independent characters, including Fat Fury and T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents.

The book also spotlights re-imagined superheroes, like Wonder Woman, who have become central to modern pop culture, and includes the values of these comics, which are popular with collectors.
