With the current spate of comicbook films hitting the big screen, action heroes are very much in vogue. Perfectly timed to catch this wave of interest, '500 Great Comicbook Action Heroes' is both a great reference tool for aficionados - and a superb introduction to a host of fascinating information for newcomers to the subject. Want to know when Superman or Batman first appeared, and who created them? Or how Flash Gordon got his name? Or who illustrated the first X-Men stories? From short potted biographies to extended spotlights the full range of comics heroes are in these pages. Including such leading lights as Superman, Spider-Man, Wonder Woman, Captain America, Wolverine and the Fantastic Four, plus the more obscure Asskickers of the Fantastic, Captain Savage and Aztec Ace. Special feature articles discuss pivotal moments in comics history from the coming of the Comics Code Authority, which almost killed off the industry, to the rise of independent publishers.
