Will Eisner : champion of the graphic novel by Paul Levitz( Book )
8 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 261 libraries worldwide
"Will Eisner (1917-2005) is universally considered the master of comics storytelling, best known for The Spirit, his iconic newspaper comic strip, and A Contract With God, the first significant graphic novel. This seminal work from 1978 ushered in a new era of personal stories in comics form that touched every adult topic from mortality to religion and sexuality, forever changing the way writers and artists approached comics storytelling. Noted historian Paul Levitz celebrates Eisner by showcasing his most famous work along­side unpublished and rare materials from the family archives. Also included are original interviews with creators such as Jules Feiffer, Art Spiegelman, Scott McCloud, Jeff Smith, Denis Kitchen, and Neil Gaiman--all of whom knew Eisner and were inspired by his work to create their own graphic novels for a new generation of readers." -- Publisher's description
75 years of DC comics : the art of modern mythmaking by Paul Levitz( Book )
17 editions published between 2010 and 2017 in English and held by 231 libraries worldwide
"In 1935, DC Comics founder Major Malcolm Wheeler-Nicholson published New Fun No. 1, the first comic book with all-new, original material--at a time when comic books were mere repositories for the castoffs of the newspaper strips. What was initially considered to be disposable media for children was well on its way to becoming the mythology of our time--the 20th century's answer to Atlas or Zorro. More than 40,000 comic books later, in honor of the publisher's 75th anniversary, Taschen has produced the single most comprehensive book on DC Comics, in an XL edition even Superman might have trouble lifting. More than 2,000 images--covers and interiors, original illustrations, photographs, film stills, and collectibles--are reproduced using the latest technology to bring the story lines, the characters, and their creators to vibrant life as they've never been seen before. Telling the tales behind the tomes is 38-year DC veteran Paul Levitz, whose in-depth essays trace the company's history, from its pulp origins through to the future of digital publishing."--Publisher description
Superman Beyond : Man of Tomorrow by J. T Krul( Book )
1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 211 libraries worldwide
"Decades from now, Superman is still the greatest hero of Metropolis, a member of the Justice Leagud and the impervious Man of Steel ... but nothing else is the same. Most of the people and places that Clark Kent loved are gone, and as the Metropolis Police Department rolls out a new squad of nanotech-powered Super Cops, it begins to look like Superman might not even be needed anymore. For the first time, the Man of Tomorrow feels like a relic of the past. But another vestige of Metropolis's history is about to make a comeback. Lex Luthor is long dead, but even the grave can't contain his hatred for Superman. Before his death, Lex hatched a plan to finally accomplish what he couldn't in life: the destruction of the Man of Steel. And if all of Earth should be destroyed in the process, it hardly matters. Can Superman defeat Luthor one last time? It will take all of his strength and resources ... as well as the help of one very old friend."--Page 4 of cover

"In June of 1938, Action Comics debuted with a new kind of comic book character on its cover: A costumed man with two identities, who possessed extraordinary strength and powers, a man able to protect the public when ordinary measures would not do. He was not the first super hero, but the Man of Steel would become the prototype for all super heroes thereafter. Superman's story, and those of Batman, Wonder Woman, and hundreds of other DC Comics characters are all told in The Golden Age of DC Comics. The single most comprehensive book on the subject, this volume traces the company's first decades, from its pulp origins up to the comic book burnings of the McCarthy '50s in over 400 pages bursting with comics, art, comics, photographs, and more comics. Plus an exclusive interview with legendary Sgt. Rock/Hawkman artist Joe Kubert!."--Jacket

The silver age of DC Comics, 1956-1970 by Paul Levitz( Book )
10 editions published between 2013 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 159 libraries worldwide
"With super heroes nearly extinct at the start of the 1950s, DC Comics reignited the fire that would make them central to modern popular culture by infusing them with science fiction elements. To circumvent the limitations of the self-censoring Comics Code Authority, DC's writers and editors spun ever-more fantastic tales, bringing super heroes and Bob Hope alike into the realm of sci-fi. The results were transformative, delivering the first-ever 'reboot' of Golden Age greats with the Flash, Green Lantern, and Hawkman as well as the hit TV show 'Batman.' 'The Silver Age of DC Comics' chronicles it all, right down to the wacky shenanigans of television's Batman, which made him the embodiment for the camp sensibility of the '60s and further immortalized the Dark Knight as a pop culture icon for generations to come. Plus a new exclusive interview with Green Lantern/Batman artist Neal Adams!"--Front flap

The bronze age of DC Comics, 1970-1984 by Paul Levitz( Book )
8 editions published between 2013 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 124 libraries worldwide
"On December 15, 1978, the dreams of generations of American children finally came true. "You’ll believe a man can fly" read the posters and billboards for the blockbuster film Superman. The hugely popular movie cemented the role of the Super Hero as America's most enduring archetype, and the comic book as one of the country's most significant native art forms. That art form, however, was already moving in a new direction. Influenced by the emergence of underground comics and shifting political tides, DC Comics' line of comics was increasingly aimed at adults, and sold in comic book shops, rather than on newsstands. Socially relevant subjects such as racism and women's rights had entered the mainstream, and comics weren't just for kids anymore. This reader-friendly sized edition explores the evolution into the Bronze Age of DC with a careful curation and expansion of material from TASCHEN's XL book, 75 Years of DC Comics, winner of the Eisner Awards, the Oscars of the comic world. Bountiful images bring the story lines, characters and creators to life, alongside an original interview with Green Lantern/Green Arrow writer Denny O'Neil." -- Publisher's description
