Description

  • Harper Perennial
  • “Sean Howe’s history of Marvel makes a compulsively readable, riotous and heartbreaking version of my favorite story,
    that of how a bunch of weirdoes changed the world…That it’s all true is just frosting on the cake.”
    —Jonathan Lethem

    “Exhaustively researched and artfully assembled, this book is a historical exploration, a labor of love, and a living
    illustration of how the weirdest corners of the counterculture can sometimes become the culture-at-large.”
    — Chuck Klosterman

    In the early 1960s, Marvel Comics introduced a series of bright-costumed superhero characters—including Iron Man, the
    Hulk, Thor, the X-Men, the Fantastic Four, Daredevil, and the Amazing Spider-Man—that would evolve into a modern
    American mythology for millions of readers. Over the last half-century, these characters have been passed along among
    generations of brilliant editors, artists, and writers who struggled with commercial mandates, a fickle audience, and,
    over matters of credit and control, one another. Written by Sean Howe, former comic book reviewer and editor at
    Entertainment Weekly, Marvel Comics: The Untold Story is a gripping narrative of one of the most extraordinary, beloved,
    and beleaguered pop cultural entities in America’s history.
