Author: Julian Darius
Cover Art: Kevin Colden 
Format: Paperback
Number of Pages: 428 pages
Price: £13.99 (Print) / £3.83 (Kindle) 

Synopsis: Over the years, DC Comics have been flooding the world with a barrage of super-fast, super-strong, and super-smart superheroes, commencing in the 1940s with the Justice Society of America and then continuing into the sixties and beyond with the Justice League, the Teen Titans, and a number of other heroes who've all achieved some sort of widespread recognition. Come to think of it, there are so many superheroes presently populating the planet, that the only real way to figure out who's who (please excuse the 80s comic book reference), is to pick up and read this book written by Dr. Julian Darius. Or should I say, the acclaimed comic book scholar, Dr. Julian Darius, who takes us on a journey through comic book history by discussing a number of classic stories, such as 'Crisis on Infinite Earths', before explaining how DC managed to establish and define the very first shared comic book universe.
