Product Description
Sometimes you can judge a book by its cover.

Especially when the cover is illustrated by some of the finest comic book artists from the past eight decades. DC Comics Cover Art is a unique, sumptuous compendium of more than 350 covers from the past 85 years, specially selected on the basis of their historical significance, iconic status, or groundbreaking design. The book is a dazzling journey through DC Comics history that brings together everyone's favourite heroes and villains, and is a must-have for comic book devotees, pop-culture fans, and lovers of great art and design. It is the only book of its kind to span the wide range of DC cover art and will be a treasured addition to any art book collection.

From the trendsetting first impressions of Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman, to game-changing modern makeovers such as Watchmen, Batman: The Killing Joke, and Kingdom Come, or the cool contemporary stylings of the Sandman universe, DC Comics Cover Art showcases the most iconic, inspiring, and memorable artwork ever to grace comic book covers. The book traces the evolution of graphic styles and trends across the decades, with engaging, expert commentary on the artwork as well as incisive profiles of celebrated cover artists-past and present-including Carmine Infantino, Brian Bolland, Dave Gibbons, Jim Lee, Adam Hughes, and Alex Ross.
