Kings of the Comic Books
Anything Could Happen in the Golden Age
Steve Hersh has had no artistic training and he hasn't sold a story in his life. But he's determined to write and draw comic books—and get paid for it. Doesn't he know the hard facts about the comic book industry in 2013?
No, he doesn't, and why should he? It's 1938. Comic books first appeared three short years ago. They're so new that the first super-hero hasn’t arrived yet.
"I'll bet we could do this," Steve tells his friend Curly. And from disaster to triumph to fresh disaster, they struggle for a foothold in careers behind the scenes of the four-color adventures.
Steve is certain they'll be remembered as kings of the comic book creators. Seven decades later, history—and you—will have to judge.
