Reviews

"Seventy years of superhero history with erudite analysis and autobiography thrown in--an account of what it's like to plunge your brain into these fictional universes for decades, refusing to come up for air."--Rolling Stone

"Morrison writes with such flair, humor and insight that Supergods may be the season's most winning exploration of pop culture and the creative process."--San Francisco Chronicle

"A personal and erudite history of the medium by one of its most intelligent and articulate practitioners . . . Morrison lays out the history of comics with infectious passion and amusement."--Financial Times

"A blast, a pure hit of hero worship and deep understanding of comics as mind expansion . . . It's hard not to be swept up in [Morrison's] vision."--Austin American-Statesman

"The perfect textbook for fanboys and the mainstream alike."--USA Today
