Batman and Bill on Hulu
While not in our video library here in DCU.
Necessary Evil: a documentary film on the concepts of villains, their general history, and their function in comics.
Worth seeing if you haven’t and it’s narrated by Christopher Lee. (Someone who knows plenty about villainy.)
@TurokSonOfStone1950 sorry I didn’t see your previous work on this. As always you did a fantastic job. I’ll add your entries to the wiki above
Wanted to drop in to say thanks for making this post and to everyone who responded. Been looking for books along this line to read so this will be a great resource.
Just plugging my own work on.the subject
if you want to learn significant events in super hero genre history
if you want to learn how Superman Batman.and Wonder Woman were created
Thanks to the adds from @TurokSonOfStone1950 and @DeSade-acolyte I’ve changed the title some and have included documentaries. I’ll try to keep the wikis somewhat organized for ease of finding/reading.
@msgtv & @TurokSonOfStone1950 This is a great thread thank you!
I enjoyed Jim Steranko’s History of Comics Vol. 1 & 2. Two tabloid sized paperbacks.
That was a great set of books
I wish I still had them
I remember two parts of it.
On the Spectre killing people in sadistic ways: “No social work.for him.”
Also a quote from.a siimilar character to Superman in the book.Gladiator describing the Invulnerable hero as he ran toward the enemy in World War I, like Wonder Woman would do in.her movie.
“They had seen it before. A type of madness had descended on him. They continued to fire at him.”
Luckily, I still have them.
I still have
The Great Comic Book Heroes
By Jules Feiffer.
Wow, I’ve delved into this story a few years back. I believe it was his granddaughter that legally had with Bill Finger officially added to Batman’s byline back in ? 2015. Did not know they had a documentary. So watching it. Great share Turok!
With Bill Finger
Appeared first with Gotham
Then Batman v Superman
The ones I own. The everything u need to know one was extremely novice level. Speaking of. The only one idk was what strange substance turns Superman’s head into an ant head? If anyone knows it’s bugged me since I’ve read it. I’ve read comics with him in that form but I couldn’t find why?
That’s crazy u posted that. I was going to create a post asking if anyone had ever watched that, while I was posting on here. I watched it on fire stick a while back.
I think those types of books are important though. One they’re a good entry point for some fans, but even for long-time deep dive fans, they provide beautiful artwork and quick reliable resources.
True. Plus there’s only one book idk everything in. The yellow book. Idk what strange substance makes Supes grow an ant head. The others I’m still not thru. Tons of stuff I learned. Like the majors, yeah. Heights, weights no. That’s why I love those. To your last point the art is incredible.
Worded that wrong. There’s only one book I do know everything but 1 thing in. The other 2 tons I didn’t know or haven’t got to yet. Which I’m sure will be tons more idk.
From 1985… Fifty Who Made DC Great. The comic book special was published to coincide with DC’s golden anniversary, and it contained profiles of 50 creators and companies who helped make the company, um, great!
