As a superhero fanatic, this book really got to me and opened new doors into the world of DC comics and marvel superheroes. With illustrations to accompany the descriptions, this book provides origin stories beyond what we already know from the media and allows insight into the creators' minds of these timeless and well-known characters. You can tell a lot of research went into this book to understand our heroes and the creators. There are plenty of pictures of old comic book covers, making you able to relive the moments these comics were released, especially for those who did actually witness these moments in their lives. I also loved the cover as it was reminiscent of the old comics that gave rise to today's media.
