  1. Silver Age The Second Generation of Comic Book Artists

    Regular Price: $200.00

    Sale Price $125.00

    Signed on the limitation page by the author and by Ramona Fradon, below a composite illustration, probably created especially for this edition, of many of her Silver Age characters, like Metamorpho and the Metal Men. Coffee-table books of vintage comics no rarity, but this is something else entirely: much of the artwork is reproduced from original artwork, and Herman provides perceptive insights into each artists' work. The focus is on the second generation of comic-book creators, beginning in 1956. Includes a quickly signed letter from the publisher, on his business letterhead. It reads "3-15-05/Best Wishes/Daniel Herman." Learn More
