Amazing Fantastic Incredible (Paperback): Stan Lee Amazing Fantastic Incredible (Paperback)

In this gorgeously illustrated, full-colour graphic memoir, Stan Lee - comic book legend and co-creator of Spider-Man, the X-Men, the Avengers, the Incredible Hulk and a legion of other Marvel superheroes - shares his iconic legacy and the story of how modern comics came to be. Stan Lee is a man who needs no introduction. The most legendary name in the history of comic books, he was the leading creative force behind Marvel Comics, and brought to life - and into the mainstream - some of the world's best-known heroes and most infamous villains throughout his career. His stories - filled with superheroes struggling with personal hang-ups and bad guys who possessed previously unseen psychological complexity - added wit and subtlety to a field previously locked into flat portrayals of good v evil. Lee put the human in superhuman and, in doing so, created a new mythology for the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. In this beautifully illustrated graphic memoir - illustrated by celebrated artist Colleen Doran - discover the true story behind the man, written with the same inimitable wit, energy and offbeat spirit that he brought to the world of comics. Moving from his impoverished childhood in Manhattan to his early days writing comics, through his military training films during World War II and the rise of the Marvel empire in the 1960s to the current cinematic resurgence, Amazing Fantastic Incredible documents the life of a man and the legacy of an industry and career. This funny, moving and incredibly honest memoir is a must-have for collectors and fans of comic books and graphic novels of every age.

Just over 225 years ago, one of the most incredible odysseys in human history took place. 1,500 men and women were crammed aboard 11 ships and transported to the other side of the planet. They were criminals, outcasts, renegades: the scum of England. Having travelled over 24,000km, across three oceans, they arrived at a country that did not yet exist. For some, it was a one-way trip to hell; for others, it proved an unexpected chance of a new life. Bollee and Nicloux's 500-page masterpiece is an accurate, perceptive and sympathetic account of the birth of Australia.

This is the exciting true story of a young herd boy who was to grow up to become a lawyer, a freedom fighter, South Africa’s first democratically elected president and the beloved grandfather of a nation. It is told here in words and pictures for the young and the young at heart: a story to read with enjoyment and remember with pride.

1973, a twenty-year-old Steve MacManus joined Fleetway Publications in London as a sub-editor on one of the UK's top adventure titles, Valiant. Within six years, he would rise to become editor of the company's most celebrated weekly, 2000 AD, shepherding it through its `Golden Age' as he commissioned numerous hit series such as The Ballad of Halo Jones, Slaine, Bad Company, Rogue Trooper, Nemesis the Warlock and more, ensuring its place as the most influential comic Britain has ever produced. For many he remains the definitive editor of the multi-award-winning SF anthology. Now, in this warm and witty memoir, MacManus lifts the lid on the fiercely creative environment that was British comics in the 1970s and `80s - from the hugely successful launch of Battle to the controversial censorship of Action, from the brief life of Starlord to the stellar rise of 2000 AD and Judge Dredd, he details the personalities at play and the corporate politics and deadline battles he and others engaged in on a daily basis. With keen insight, MacManus reveals how against all odds 2000 AD defined comics for a generation and became a global phenomenon - one that would spearhead a revolution in the graphic arts that is still felt today.

In June of 1938, Action Comics debuted with a new kind of comic-book character on its cover: a costumed man with two identities, who possessed extraordinary strength and powers-a man able to protect the public when ordinary measures would not do. He was not the first super hero, but the Man of Steel would become the prototype for all super heroes thereafter. Superman's story, and those of Batman, Wonder Woman, and hundreds of other DC Comics characters, are all told in The Golden Age of DC Comics. Expanded from the Eisner Award-winning XL book, 75 Years of DC Comics, this edition offers readers the ultimate insight on DC's first decades, from its pulp origins up to the comic-book burnings of the McCarthy '50s. More than 600 pages of covers and interiors, original illustrations, photographs, film stills, and ephemera bring the story lines, the characters, and their creators to vibrant life.

Wonder Woman - Bondage and Feminism in the Marston/Peter Comics, 1941-1948 (Hardcover): Noah Berlatsky Wonder Woman - Bondage and Feminism in the Marston/Peter Comics, 1941-1948 (Hardcover)
Noah Berlatsky
R2,076 Discovery Miles 20 760 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

William Marston was an unusual man--a psychologist, a soft-porn pulp novelist, more than a bit of a carny, and the (self-declared) inventor of the lie detector. He was also the creator of "Wonder Woman," the comic that he used to express two of his greatest passions: feminism and women in bondage.
Comics expert Noah Berlatsky takes us on a wild ride through the "Wonder Woman" comics of the 1940s, vividly illustrating how Marston's many quirks and contradictions, along with the odd disproportionate composition created by illustrator Harry Peter, produced a comic that was radically ahead of its time in terms of its bold presentation of female power and sexuality. Himself a committed polyamorist, Marston created a universe that was friendly to queer sexualities and lifestyles, from kink to lesbianism to cross-dressing. Written with a deep affection for the fantastically pulpy elements of the early "Wonder Woman"comics, from invisible jets to giant multi-lunged space kangaroos, the book also reveals how the comic addressed serious, even taboo issues like rape and incest.
"Wonder Woman: Bondage and Feminism in the Marston/Peter Comics" "1941-1948 "reveals how illustrator and writer came together to create a unique, visionary work of art, filled with bizarre ambition, revolutionary fervor, and love, far different from the action hero symbol of the feminist movement many of us recall from television.

South Africa may have changed in twenty years but Zapiro's sharp wit and cutting satire have remained a welcome constant over the years.

W. Heath Robinson is best known for his hilarious drawings of zany contraptions, though his work ranged across a wide variety of topics covering many aspects of British life in the decades following the First World War. Starting out as a watercolour artist, he quickly turned to the more lucrative field of book illustration and developed his forte in satirical drawings and cartoons. He was regularly commissioned by the editors of Tatler and The Sketch and in great demand from advertising companies. Collections of his drawings were subsequently published in many different editions and became so successful as to transform Heath Robinson into a household name, celebrated for his eccentric brand of British humour. Presenting such innovations as the 'Zip-Opening Bonnet', the 'Duo-car for the Incompatible' and the handy 'New Rear Wheel Gear for Turning the Car in One Movement', this volume of Heath Robinson illustrations with commentary by K.R.G. Browne will appeal to 'everybody who is ever likely to drive, be driven in, or get run over by a mechanically propelled vehicle'.
