Men of Tomorrow: Geeks, Gangsters, and the Birth of the Comic Book
Gerard Jones (au)
Tells the rich tale behind the origins of comic books, revealing the sometimes tormented souls who invented this splashy art form and the unscrupulous operators who sold it. Here’s an unusual story of how geeks and gangsters in New York City crafted a parallel reality better than their own and one that still sells today. The early comics industry was a chaotic, lawless, back-stabbing mess of a business. Here are some juicy stories about the creators of Superman, Batman, Captain America and Wonder Woman as well as the men who published the first comic books. The history of the super-hero built by mobsters on a foundation of broken promises, broken hearts and broken backs, is also the secret history of modern America. “Fascinating.” Illustrations.
