New York Comic Con 2013...



I'm very happy to report that this coming Thursday I'll be headed to the New York Comic Con once again. I'm also pleased to announce that my newest book is hitting shelves, Marvel: Year by Year. For anyone familiar with the Marvel Chronicle, this is the newest version of that massive hardcover, streamlined and as up to date as we could possibly make it. This 384-page hardcover (also written by fellow historians Peter Sanderson, Tom Brevoort, and Tom DeFalco) features a detailed month by month history of Marvel Comics from the 1930s until today. Here's an example of one of the newer spreads in the updated section:


I'll be signing copies of this book at DK's booth during NYCC, so be sure to check out the signing times below.


I'll also be promoting The Superman Files at the show, with two signings at the Andrews McMeel booth. I'm not sure if we'll have actual copies of The Superman Files for sale by the convention, but I'm told we should have a poster or post card of some sort. Be sure to swing by either way, as you won't want to miss your chance to flip through this great scrapbook-style history of the life of the Man of Steel.


Here's my signing schedule for the show:

Friday 10/11

Andrews McMeel Booth (#2219) from 2:00-3:00 pm
DK Booth (#1829) from 5:00-6:00 pm

Saturday 10/12

DK Booth (#1829) 1:00-2:00 pm
Andrews McMeel Booth (#2219) from 3:00-4:00 pm

I really like your Batman Files and Batman Vault. I'm sure the Superman Files will be great, too! Have you considered doing a scrapbook-type book for Dick Grayson's 75th in 2015? I know he's not as big a name as Batman or Superman, but he doesn't have any books of this type just about him, and I think a lot of fans (such as me) would really love something like that.

Glad you liked The Batman Files. I would love to do a book (in any format, really) about Dick Grayson and the rest of the Robins, but as of yet, I haven't had any luck convincing a publisher to move forward with one. While I consider Robin the third most important character from DC, especially in terms of pop culture, publishers don't quite see eye-to-eye with me.

I'll keep trying, though. And thanks for reading!
