A visual and entertaining adventure exploring one of the most popular and significant eras of comic book history. From 1956 to 1970, the "Silver Age of Comics" gave us Spider-Man, The Avengers, X-Men, The Incredible Hulk, Iron Man and a flurry of other unforgettable and formidable characters. The Silver Age redefined and immortalized superheroes as the massive pop culture titans they are today. Lavishly illustrated with comic book covers and original art, this book chronicles the new frontier of DC Comics, with a revamped Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman, and new characters including Hawkman; Marvel's new comics featuring Thor and The Fantastic Four; the pop art years that saw Batman's new look and TV series; and independent characters, including Fat Fury and T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents. Included are values of these comics, which are popular with collectors.
