Christmas Wishlist Book Talk #7

Don't laugh, but do, and remember your fan of the comics - young and old.

There are two entirely different and yet similar books for them to choose from and both with come with DC Comics nod of approval - couldn't be better than that!

The first one comes from Taschen who have compiled a big comprehensive book called 75 Years of DC Comics: The Art of Modern Mythmaking by Paul Levitz and it's got it all.  There is "year-by-year timelines that fold out to nearly four feet and biographies of the legends who built DC make this an invaluable reference for any comic book fan."  They won't ever need anything else to feed the fun gene.

Ahhh, but there's actually more, and a bit different with DC Super Heroes: The Ultimate Pop-Up Book by DC Comics and Matthew Reinhart.  The latter is a real king in the land of paper engineer's and is there because he creates some real magic.  This book would definitely please your budding or established comic fan.
