Why read it?

1 author picked The Great Comic Book Heroes as one of their favorite books. Why do they recommend it?

Jules wrote this book in 1965, so it certainly doesn’t reflect the latest scholarship. But as probably the first critical history of the Golden Age, it’s a valuable read—and a lot of fun!  Jules gives a real sense of what it was like to be alive, in New York City, creating these great works.

From Brett's list on the history of golden age comics.
