Staff Picks (January 13): The Secret History of Marvel Comics
Dec 14, 2012
In the days before Marvel Comics was its own company, they were part of Cadence and Magazine Management, publishers of "men’s" magazines that were the Cinemax after Dark of their day and scandal magazines that would do TMZ and Jerry Springer proud. In Fantagraphics Books’ The Secret History of Marvel Comics we see the House of Ideas at its foundation. Martin Goodman started in the pulp era with titles like Marvel Super Science and Marvel Tales with artists such as Jack Kirby. Then there were the men’s magazines featuring covers with women as scantily clad as they could get away with at that time.
In The Secret History of Marvel Comics: Jack Kirby and the Moonlighting Artists at Martin Goodman's Empire you will find rare pieces of comic art, pulp and magazine history that is part of Marvel Comics’ unseen history.
