Almost every significant character introduction or change is covered, spotlighting Superman, Batman, Aquaman, Wonder Woman, Flash, Green Lantern, Green Arrow, Justice League, Legion of Super Heroes, Justice Society, Teen Titans, Doom Patrol, Sandman, Jonah Hex, and many more.
The only omission I've seen was the death of the pocket universe Superboy in Legion of Super Heroes, which was a pretty big deal. But every other event I can think of in my years of reading DC Comics is addressed here.
This brought back some amazing memories for me. Nice book and nice presentation.
The rebirth of The Spectre in 1974 (Adventure Comics #431), the great race between Superman and Flash in August 1967 (Superman #199) and even The Wizard of Oz DC/Marvel crossover in the '70s. Just a sampling of the famous and the obscure moments of DC mythos that intersect in this single volume.
This well written, comprehensive book proudly presents 75 years of DC's legacy. Visually and contextually, I am very, very pleased with this item, and any comics fan (expert or novice) will cherish it.
Reading this chronicle has definitely expanded my knowledge, passion and interest in comic book fantasy and has made me see in a new light what goes behind the production of our favourite characters and events. One of the things that struck me was how long it took for Jerry Siegel and Joe Schuster to frame the character of Superman to the one who debuted in 1938 as Kal-L of Krypton(-Two). All the subsequent reimagining over the years have resulted because of this stellar character who is arguably at the centre of the DC Universe and Multiverse that we are still exploring to this day.
I highly recommend this Chronicle, alongside its Marvel counterpart in actuality, as they both provide such thesis on everything surrounding these iconic comic book `giants' that you can't help opening up your mind to the intricate web of DC's foundations and everlasting legacy.

Of most interest to people researching graphic art as an avocation- a fine overview of the work put out by DC but more about the art than individual stories.Published 3 months ago by thirdtwin
