Slugfest: Inside the Epic, 50-Year Battle Between Marvel and DC – Reed Tucker, De Capo Press, 2017 hardcover
I wasn’t into comics that much as a kid, except for those few my parents approved, which pretty much meant Disney comics. They were fine, but a limited palette. When I was a little older, and had an allowance (though still, in truth, a kid) I discovered the Batman and Superman comics and liked those, and also Iron Man and Fantastic Four.
It wasn’t until much later, after I had quit comics for the Winston Science Fiction books, Astounding Science Fiction and whatever other science fiction and fantasy I could lay my hands on that I began reading, here and there, about comics, and the competition between brands. It wasn’t until after college that I began to visit a comic shop and to buy comics that interested me, and my interest grew.
I read the post on James Reasoner’s blog on this book (HERE) with great interest, and just got a copy from the library. I’m only a few pages in, but it looks to be fun reading.
