If you are a fan of comics you may be aware of much of the historical content, but there is insider commentary by creators of the comics we love, artists and writers alike. I especially enjoyed the exploration of the immigrant experience and its influence on the development of superheroes.

It examines the dawn of the comic book genre and its powerful legacy, as well as the evolution of the characters who leapt from the pages over the last 75 years and their ongoing worldwide cultural impact. It chronicles how these disposable diversions were subject to intense government scrutiny for their influence on American children and how they were created in large part by the children of immigrants whose fierce loyalty to a new homeland laid the foundation for a multi-billion-dollar industry that is an influential part of our national identity.
