Batman: The War Years 1939-1945: Presenting over 20 classic full length Batman tales from the DC comics vault! (DC Comics: The War Years)

For more than 75 years, through countless comics, television, and movies, Batman has been a symbol of strength and perseverance. He was created in 1939, on the brink of World War II -- a volatile time, when we needed a hero most. Who better to come to the rescue than the Caped Crusader? For the first time, Batman: The War Years 1939-1945 details The Dark Knightâ??s involvement in the war and his fight against some very real villains.The poor little rich boy orphaned in a late-night robbery. The lad training for years so that one day he could avenge his parents' deaths. The bat that flies through the window at a crucial moment, inspiring Bruce Wayne with a name and a motif. All of these are wonderful elements in a timeless tale. By early 1940, both Batman and Robin were up and running in no less than two hit comic books. Bob Kane hired a teenager that he happened to meet—Jerry Robinson—to help him churn out what looked like a nice long run of Batman stories.They didn't know the half of it.For, as the Second World War loomed ever larger on the horizon, Batman was about to become big business, comic-book style.Ray Thomas has beena  comics writer since 1965, mostly for Marvel or DC.

 - John Stanley in the 1940s: A Comics Bibilography: Compiled and Annotated by Frank M. Young
John Stanley in the 1940s: A Comics Bibilography: Compiled and Annotated by Frank M. Young

Writer and sometimes artist of the million-selling Dell Comics magazines MARGE'S LITTLE LULU and MARGE'S TUBBY, John Stanley was unknown to his legion of fans. Until 1964, the prolific and talented Stanley--considered by many the finest mainstream comics writer in American history--was not allowed to sign his name to his work. This lavishly illustrated, densely annotated chronological guide explores John Stanley's first decade of comics creation--the 1940s. Issue by issue, story by story, author Frank M. Young (considered a leading expert on Stanley's work) offers a definitive look at a genius writer's first, groundbreaking efforts as a comics creator. Newly revised, this edition is illustrated with thumbnails of every comic book cover, plus four complete rare comics stories and a cover gallery, and profiles of seven important characters in John Stanley's 1940s comics. This book is the most thorough and important yet published on the work of John Stanley.

 - Comic Shop: The Retail Mavericks Who Gave Us a New Geek Culture
Comic Shop: The Retail Mavericks Who Gave Us a New Geek Culture

The modern comic book shop was born in the early 1970s. Its rise was due in large part to Phil Seuling, the entrepreneur whose direct market model allowed shops to get comics straight from the publishers. Stores could then better customize their offerings and independent publishers could access national distribution. Shops opened up a space for quirky ideas to gain an audience and helped transform small-press series, from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles to Bone, into media giants.Comic Shop is the first book to trace the history of these cultural icons. Dan Gearino brings us from their origins to the present-day, when the rise of digital platforms and a changing retail landscape have the industry at a crossroads. When the book was first published in 2017, Gearino had spent a year with stores around the country, following how they navigated the business. For this updated and expanded paperback edition, he covers the wild retail landscape of 2017 and 2018, a time that was brutal for stores and rich for comics as an art form. Along the way he interviews pioneers of comics retailing and other important players, including many women; top creators; and those who continue to push the business in new directions. A revised guide to dozens of the most interesting shops around the United State...

 - Monsters and Myths: Surrealism & War in the 1930s and 1940s
Monsters and Myths: Surrealism & War in the 1930s and 1940s

This revelatory survey of Surrealist masterworks of the 1930s and 1940s by artists such as Salvador Dalí, Joan Miró, Max Ernst, and André Masson presents the movement through a new and timely lens--that of war, violence, and exile.During the pivotal years between the world wars, Surrealist artists on both sides of the Atlantic responded through their works to the rise of Hitler and the spread of Fascism in Europe, resulting in a period of surprising brilliance and fertility. Monstrosities in the real world bred monsters in paintings and sculpture, on film, and in the pages of journals and artists' books. Despite the political and personal turmoil brought on by the Spanish Civil War and World War II, avant-garde artists in Europe and those who sought refuge in the United States pushed themselves to create some of the most potent and striking images of the Surrealist movement. Trailblazing essays by four experts in the field trace the experimental and international extent of Surrealist art during these years--and, perhaps most unexpectedly of all, its irrepressible beauty.

 - The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay
The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay

WINNER OF THE PULITZER PRIZE   The beloved, award-winning The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay, a Michael Chabon masterwork, is the American epic of two boy geniuses named Joe Kavalier and Sammy Clay. Now with special bonus material by Michael Chabon.   A “towering, swash-buckling thrill of a book” (Newsweek), hailed as Chabon’s “magnum opus” (The New York Review of Books), The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay is a triumph of originality, imagination, and storytelling, an exuberant, irresistible novel that begins in New York City in 1939. A young escape artist and budding magician named Joe Kavalier arrives on the doorstep of his cousin, Sammy Clay. While the long shadow of Hitler falls across Europe, America is happily in thrall to the Golden Age of comic books, and in a distant corner of Brooklyn, Sammy is looking for a way to cash in on the craze. He finds the ideal partner in the aloof, artistically gifted Joe, and together they embark on an adventure that takes them deep into the heart of Manhattan, and the heart of old-fashioned American ambition. From the shared fears, dreams, and desires of two teenage boys, they spin comic book tales of the heroic, fascist-fighting Escapist and the beautiful, mysterious Luna Moth, otherworldly mistress of the night....

She found those friends, and in the process went through her blonde phase before becoming an attractive redhead with a bent for trouble; and after ten issues of Thrilling Comics, graduated to her own comic title for a funny 17-issue run. Readers have waited over 60 years for a collection of her stories – well, wait no more!This book contains Kathy's stories from Thrilling Comics #64-74 (she did not appear in #65) and KATHY #1-5.

Miss Fury Treasury: Volume 1: Gwandanaland Comics #1029 -- She's The Sultry Sentinel - The Cat-Like Crimefighter! Thrilling Stories from the 1940s

The saga of MISS FURY began with a fashion choice. When Marla Drake learned that someone else was attending a party in the same outfit as she, instead she put on an African panther suit which had belonged to her uncle. She never made it to the part, instead helping to capture a dangerous criminal, and thus embarked on a career of costumed crimefighting!MISS FURY was born in the newspaper strips and was drawn by June Tarpe Mills – the first woman illustrator to draw and woman costumed hero. Her stories were more complex and realistic, intertwining personal lives of the heroine long before the “relevant” comics of the 1960s and 1970s. The collection presents some of her best stories form the comic pages!This book contains her appearance in The Saint #6, and stories from Miss Fury #2-4.

Boot And Her Buddies Treasury: Gwandanaland Comics #349 - The "Sweetheart of America" In Her First Comic Series form the 1940s

BOOTS was known for decades as the “Sweetheart of America,” as she graced the comic pages of the newspapers and fought off suitor after suitor. BOOTS AND HER BUDDIES told the story of a young American gal and her friends as they side-stepped and stumbled their way through the real world. She graduated to the comics in 1948 after a couple decades of college (wow – she must be smart!) and finally choosing a guy to marry. Still young at heart and mind, BOOTS continued to entertain not only in the comics, but in newspaper well into the 1960s, making her one of the most popular and longest-running strips in history. Created and drawn by Edgar Everett “Abe” Martin, this collection is taken from her Standard Comics series, four great misadventures issues! NOTE: The later (1955) BOOT AND HER BUDDIES series is so different in tone, style and content, that we will present that as a separate collection.
