DC THROUGH THE 80S: THE HEROES (21 Dec 2021)
DC Comics

For the first time, DC offers a retrospective of the 1980s, a monumental decade that introduced some of DC's all-time bestselling titles.

The 1980s were a period of great achievement and transition for DC, one that introduced some of DC's all-time bestselling titles including Watchmen and The Dark Knight Returns. For the first time, DC offers a retrospective of this monumental decade in one collected edition. 
 
The early 1980s saw a tectonic shift rumble through the world of comic books. The newsstands and mom-and-pop stores that had been comics' primary distribution points were vanishing, taking with them the familiar "Hey Kids! Comics!" displays. In their place, new world of comic book specialty shops was opening up, changing the medium's audience--and everything else about the art form.

In the final volume of three comprehensive collections exploring this revolutionary decade, former DC Comics president and veteran comics writer Paul Levitz revisits the stories that exemplified this era.

Presented here are milestones in graphic storytelling including The Man of Steel # 1 written and illustrated by comics legend John Byrne which revamped Superman for a new era, The New Teen Titans # 1 by Marv Wolfman and George Pérez which became DC’s bestselling title of the decade and inspired a new generation of writers and artists which its innovative approach which put as much emphasis on the heroes’ personal lives as their battles and much more. 

Look back on a vanished time and smile again at its magic where the modern era of comics was born!
