Are there any comic book fans reading this? I'm not really, but that doesn't mean I wouldn't love to have this giant book. 720 pages outlining the making of DC comics and biographies of the makers. The author of this book just finished his 38th year as DC's president and publisher. There are more than 2,000 pictures in this book telling the stories behind DC and its history. $200 ..
