(W) Paul Levitz (A) DC Comics
In 1935, DC Comics founder Major Malcolm Wheeler-Nicholson published New Fun #1, the first comic book with all-new, all-original comic material. What began as disposable media for children was soon 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 and in honor of the publisher's 75th anniversary, TASCHEN has produced the single most comprehensive book on DC Comics. 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. The 2010 original XL edition of 75 Years of DC Comics was winner of the 2011 Eisner Comic Industry Award for Best Comics-Related Book of the Year! But as even Superman might have trouble lifting the XL, here is the chance to enjoy the title in a smaller format. And if it is still too heavy for you, the slipcase converts into a book stand, so you can delight in your favorite comic stories and characters book on display.
Personalization requests are due by Monday, December 4th!
Here’s how the personalization works:
When you place your order with the CBLDF for these holiday premiums, you can have each of the offered books personalized to one or two names, and the artist (or writer) will sign and personalize the book on a high quality CBLDF-branded bookplate. When you place your order, in the “NOTE” section of the check-out form, please include the personalization request, such as: “For Linus and Lucy,” or “For Rerun,” or “To The Van Pelts!” (Artists will not be able to provide sketches or other messages.)
