In his book, Joe Simon tells the compelling, definitive history of the creators who gave us Superman, Captain America, Archie, Captain Marvel, Spider-Man and more. Meet the crime comics editor who would himself be accused of a gruesome murder, the horror artist who was periodically released from a mental hospital in order to meet his publishing deadlines, the famous Senator Estes Kefauver, whose subcommittee investigated comic books as a cause of juvenile delinquency, and dozens of other fascinating personalities.
