Summary:
From the Depression to Vietnam, the '50s feminist movement to 9/11, comics have kept pace with their cultural climate, offering cutting-edge critiques that have captivated millions since their inception in 1931.

In fact, comics have undergone a process similar to their own plots: they continually reinvent themselves in order to avoid annihilation. COMIC BOOK SUPERHEROES UNMASKED conducts a feature-length investigation into the evolution of these mighty figures, from the first issue of Superman to the political manifestoes of the late '60s to the most recent graphic novels. Interviews with Michael Chabon, Will Eisner, and myriad authors, artists, and experts illuminate the production and reception of comics while highlighting their brilliance as social commentaries.

Join THE HISTORY CHANNEL for an in-depth exploration into the timeless appeal and continued magic of the fantastical world of comics.
