This book should be perfect bedtime reading, as it is divided into short, brief, easy to read chapters. Unfortunately, I know the story it’s telling all too well, and it still gets me excited, not sleepy. So I see it’s daylight out there. Still, it’s nice to still be excitable when you’re over sixty.
It's probably not surprising that some reviewers apparently read this rooting for a particular outcome, but it's really not the point of the book.
The author is completely objective throughout and where anything was the subject of rumour, it's pretty clearly stated.
What I personally found fascinating was insight to areas of the industry or points in both DC and Marvel history I was previously not privy to.
Not having spent precious comic book budget on trade magazines in the 70s or 80s, I missed interviews with a lot of the creative talent, so it was great to hear quotes from so many of them and find out where some of them went to, as well.
I was never one to buy output of only one company, so the obvious competition wasn't particularly of interest to me at the time and was even sad to see at certain points. Hearing the depths that both companies and some of their staff went to within these pages seems childish well beyond trying to seize the larger market share, but then that's not uncommon when art becomes industry. Nonetheless, it's brilliantly recorded and I found it hard to put down.
Editorially, the repetition of some events (albeit in short passages) is surprising, but at least it appears to have been proof read, which seems to be a lost art in recent times.
I detected no bias and the epilogue couldn't be clearer about opinions on winners and losers, or whether there are any at all.
I take one reviewer's point about not all successes and failures being discussed in the same depth, but I'd suggest that each case seems to have been treated proportionately in terms of the impact of the parent company, or the industry as a whole.
To anyone who has an interest in the history of DC and Marvel, I'd highly recommend this book.
This book is so detailed that it made me wish I was around in New York during the golden age of comics.
If you care about comics, definitely read this book!
