Superhero movies have gripped the imagination since the 1950s when the film version of Superman burst onto a scene now dominated by blockbuster events from Marvel and DC. Avengers, Iron Man, Dark Knight, Judge Dredd, Hellboy and the Rocketeer all make an appearance in this fully illustrated, nostalgia-driven, retro history. A concise introduction tracks the chronicle of modern popular culture and its manifestations in Comicons, fan art and the mass audiences for a once print-only phenomenon.
