In the early 1960s, Marvel Comics introduced a series of bright-costumed superhero characters that would evolve into a modern American mythology for millions of readers. Over the last half-century, these characters have been passed along among generations of brilliant editors, artists, and writers who struggled with commercial mandates, a fickle audience, and, over matters of credit and control, one another. In Marvel Comics: The Untold Story, Sean Howe tells the story of one of the most extraordinary, beloved, and beleaguered pop cultural entities in America’s history.
