Author: Douglas Wolk
Book Description: In All of the Marvels, Douglas Wolk takes readers through the mammoth Marvel narrative seeing through it, as a prism through which to view the landscape of American culture. The Marvel storylines become a fun-house-mirror history of the past sixty years, from the atomic night terrors of the Cold War to the technocracy and political division of the present day—a boisterous, tragicomic, magnificently filigreed epic about power and ethics, set in a world transformed by wonders.
