Product Overview

The Blue Beetle debuted in 1939, rivaling such icons as Superman and Batman for longevity in comics, but not in popularity until his recent death and resurrection as a result of DC Comics' hit Infinite Crisis series. Now, Comic Book Artist Magazine's Christopher Irving explores the history and uncovers the secrets lurking under the cover of the character's comics in The Blue Beetle Companion! Follow his 60-plus years of evolution - from the world of Fox Comics to an in-depth history of Charlton Comics - all the way to the hall of today's DC Comics. Find out what really happened to infamous Golden Age publisher Victor Fox, and get an in-depth look at the Blue Beetle radio show and Jack "King" Kirby's Blue Beetle comic strip. Also, presented for the first time since 1939: the first appearance of The Blue Beetle from Mystery Men Comics #1! Featuring interviews with Will Eisner, Joe Simon, Joe Gill, Roy Thomas, Geoff Johns, Cully Hamner, Keith Giffen, Len Wein, and others, plus never-before-seen Blue Beetle designs by Alex Ross and Alan Weiss, as well as artwork by Will Eisner, Charles Nicholas, Steve Ditko, Kevin Maguire and more! It also features an introduction by Tom DeHaven, the acclaimed author of the novel It's Superman! and Derby Dugan's Depression Funnies. Featuring a new cover by current Blue Beetle artist Cully Hamner, this is the ultimate look at one of comicdom's longest-living heroes!
