With the advent of television and the wrath of Congress, the comic book industry simultaneously faced the two greatest threats to its existence in the 1950s. This pressure served to fuel the creative community as the boundaries of the medium were expanded and some of the most legendary comic book tales of all time were crafted. Aptly named, THE GREATEST 1950s STORIES EVER TOLD collects the most classic and influential tales of that century. Written by legends and pioneers, this book includes the landmark adventures of Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, and the Flash. Hardcover, 288 pages, full color. NOTE: DC Greatest Stories Ever Told (1st Series) Vol. 5. Cover price $29.95.
