Now with 16 Extra Pages! This 1970s sequel volume covers Marvel’s final historical “twilight” phase, as Stan Lee went from writer to publisher, Jack Kirby left (and later returned), Roy Thomas rose as writer and editor, and a new wave of writers and artists expanded the boundaries of comics beyond super-heroes, while planting the seeds for the company’s eventual self-destruction. Covers the Spider-Man “drug” issues, Conan the Barbarian, Tomb of Dracula, Master of Kung Fu, Howard the Duck, the new X-Men, and more, plus creators Chris Claremont, Barry Windsor-Smith, Gene Colan, Marv Wolfman, Steve Gerber, John Romita, Gil Kane, Sal Buscema, and others!

New SOFTCOVER Edition of Reed Crandall: Illustrator of the Comics now available!

The Hardcover Edition sold out just months after its release, so we’ve gone back to press for a limited run in Softcover. Don’t miss this one!

NEW SOFTCOVER EDITION! From the 1940s to the ’70s, Reed Crandall brought a unique and masterful style to American comic art. Using an illustrator’s approach on everything he touched, Crandall gained a reputation as the “artist’s artist” through his skillful interpretations of Golden Age super-heroes Doll Man, The Ray, and Blackhawk (his signature character); horror and sci-fi for the legendary EC Comics line; Warren Publishing’s Creepy, Eerie, and Blazing Combat; the THUNDER Agents and Edgar Rice Burroughs characters; and even Flash Gordon for King Features. Comic art historian Roger Hill has compiled a complete and extensive history of Crandall’s life and career, from his early years and major successes, through his tragic decline and passing in 1982. This full-color softcover includes never-before-seen photos, a wealth of rare and unpublished artwork, and over eighty thousand words of insight into one of the true illustrators of the comics.

American Comic Book Chronicles: The 1950s and The 1990s are back in print!

American Comic Book Chronicles: The 1950s

The 1950s volume documents the era of Marilyn Monroe and Elvis Presley, with a year-by-year account of the most significant publications, notable creators, and impactful trends in comics, including EC’s Tales of the Crypt, Mad, Carl Barks’ Donald Duck and Uncle Scrooge, re-tooling the Flash in Showcase #4, return of Timely’s Captain America, Human Torch and Sub-Mariner, Fredric Wertham’s anti-comics campaign, and more! Written by the late, great Bill Schelly!

American Comic Book Chronicles: The 1990s

The 1990s volume covers the decade when Marvel Comics sold 8.1 million copies of an issue of the X-Men, saw its superstar creators form their own company, cloned Spider-Man, and went bankrupt. The 1990s was when Superman died, Batman had his back broken, and the runaway success of Neil Gaiman’s Sandman led to DC Comics’ Vertigo line of adult comic books. Relive all the gimmicky covers, skimpy costumes, and mega-crossovers when companies like Image, Valiant and Malibu published million-selling comic books before the industry experienced a shocking and rapid collapse. Written by Keith Dallas and Jason Sacks.
