I'm suprised no one's mentioned this, but it's a long and detailed story about the Golden Age of comics. It's quite a great read and it was fascinating to see how comics--or at least the form we're familiar with--functioned in a greater social context. By and large it's based on Siegel, Shuster, Simon, Kirby and the creation of characters and how they functioned throughout war-time. Highly recommended
I tried reading this book a while ago...I recommend reading the first 1/3 of the book...after that it just gets kinda dumb...when they introduce the girl, thats where the story takes a nose dive in my opinion...but the first part, where they create the character and all that, that part was excellent...
