Publisher Comments:

From Batman and Superman, to The Amazing Spider-Man - the definitive book about the creators of the greatest superheroes! Learn the true story of the "gay" Superman; of how DC fought to de-"sex" Lois Lane, and the real truth about who really created the Joker and Robin. Read the only interview, never before published, of Bill Finger telling the unvarnished truth about the creation of Batman, while noted pop-culture historian Thomas Andrae, a world-renowned expert on Batman and Superman, provides commentary and offers definitive interviews with Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, creators of Superman; with Bob Kane and Bill Finger, co-creators of Batman; and Jerry Robinson, creator of Robin, the Boy Wonder, and the Joker. Also presented are interviews with and commentary about Jack Kirby covering the King's entire career including a detailed review of the creation of the Amazing Spider-Man, Captain America, and the Marvel Universe, plus an extensive interview with Will Eisner complete with a reprint of the rarely seen Wonderman story and an exhaustive discussion about The Spirit.
