DC Treasure Trove
I considered getting Paul Levitz’s 75 Years of DC Comics, but I couldn’t get it into my house without a crane, so I’m happy to settle for these smaller volumes, by the same author and drawing on the same material. The Golden Age of DC Comics and The Silver Age of DC Comics are the first in a five (?) volume reprint/reconfiguring of that original book, published on a more human scale. Along with DC Comics Year-By-Year: A Visual Chronicle, these tomes will fill in some DC history for me for a new blogging project here at Longbox Graveyard, where I will look at one significant comic per year, from 1938 to the present day.
I’ve already completed the 1939 blog (examining Marvel Comics #1), but I want to publish 1938 first (which naturally will look at Action Comics #1), so it will be awhile yet before this series debuts. And at one year per blog, published once every several weeks, the series will take approximately … forever … to run its course.
In the meantime, I have some DC history to read.
