Details  

In The Marvel Age of Comics 1961 -1978 by Taschen publishing, legendary writer and editor Roy Thomas takes you to the heart of comic history—an age of triumphant character and narrative innovation that reinvented the super hero genre. With hundreds of images and insider insights, this comic book archive traces the birth of champions who were at once epic in their powers and adversaries and grounded in a world that readers recognized as close to their own; relatable heroes with the same problems, and struggles as everyone else like the iconic Hulk, Spider-Man, Iron Man and the X-Men. By the ’70s, we see how the House of Ideas also elevated horror, sword and sorcery, and martial arts in its stable of titanic demigods, introducing iconic characters like Man-Thing, Conan, and Shang-Chi and proving that their brand of storytelling could succeed and flourish outside of the capes and tights. Behind it all, we get to know the extraordinary Marvel architects whose names are almost as familiar as the mortals they brought to life—Stan Lee, Jack Kirby, and Steve Ditko, along with a roster of greats like John Romita, John Buscema, Marie Severin, and Jim Steranko. The result is a behind-the-scenes treasure trove and a jewel for any comic fan’s library, brimming with the innovation and energy of an invincible era for Marvel and its heroes alike.
