    1st printing. Text by Dian Hanson. Art and cover by Peter Driben. His name is less familiar than Vargas' and Elvgren's, but his brilliantly colored voluptuous pin-ups are well known.

He was rediscovered in the 1990s as the subject of Taschen's The Best of American Girlie Magazines, and since has decorated T-shirts and coffee mugs, album covers and tattooed tushes. Now his many fans can have over 200 of his original paintings and published covers, from the beginning to the end of his prolific career, in a light, portable and affordable edition.

    1st printing. Art and cover by Gil Elvgren. He's called the King of Pin-up for good reason. Gillette Elvgren, known as Gil, created some 700 pin-up oils during his long career, more than any other calendar artist. His subjects were flirty, sassy, playful and spirited, quintessential American girls who found themselves unintentionally exposed in myriad ways. His works have been the subject of top selling Taschen books and calendars, and now 200 of his best are available in a compact package perfect for gifting-to oneself and others. From his first mid-30s paintings to his very last, it's all here, more portable and affordable than ever! Softcover (Flexibound), 5-in. x 7-in., 192 pages, full color. Cover price $9.99.

    Little Book of Pin-Up: Vargas SC (2015 Taschen) The War Years 1940-1946 1-1ST

    1st printing. Art and cover by Alberto Vargas. Alberto Vargas took over Esquire magazine's monthly pin-up post in late 1940. By 1942, when the U.S. joined the war, he had more than a million ardent fans who carried his pin-ups in backpacks and duffel bags as reminders of the American girls they'd left behind. When Esquire was charged with obscenity over a particularly spicy pin-up the military stepped in the fight for The Vargas Girl, declaring her necessary for morale. Today these wartime pin-ups are the most collectible of Vargas' work, and we've collected them all in this compact, affordable 192-page volume. Softcover (Flexibound), 5-in. x 7-in., 192 pages, full color. Cover price $9.99.

    1st printing.

    By Roy Thomas.

    In 1962, he was created by exposure to gamma radiation in Incredible Hulk #1. Not only did the Hulk fight anyone who got in his way, but his alter ego, Bruce Banner, fought the multiple personality disorder that transformed him, spawning many other versions of the Hulk, each of whom were aspects of Bruce's personality. Despite that, the Hulk took down the Leader, the Abomination, and Wolverine, among hundreds of other great villains. The star of a smash-hit TV show, two blockbuster movies, and hundreds of great comics, he's one of the most instantly recognizable characters in the world.

    1st printing.

    By Roy Thomas.

    He made his debut in 1963, in Tales of Suspense #39, wearing a cumbersome gray exoskeleton that looked more like a robot than a man.

More than fifty years and countless comics adventures later, Iron Man became a box-office smash, and one of the most popular super heroes in the world.
