THE BIG BOOK OF THE '70S
THE BIG BOOK OF THE 70'S is a comprehensive and educational journey back to the most tumultuous and tacky decade of modern history. Using comic strips to revisit the "Me" Era, this entertaining cultural history text looks at the origins and emergence of such oddities as the pet rock, bell bottoms, mood rings, disco, streaking, and running. But at the same time deeper issues like Vietnam, the women's movement, terrorism, and the gasoline shortage are also treated with the respect that they deserve.
In a hilarious tale of high school isolation and individualism, Finster, a nerdy comic shop employee and dreamer, tries to survive the danger-filled halls of academe while courting the most popular girl in school. But more comfortable in an imaginary world of super heroes and villains, the socially inept Fanboy finds himself the recipient of agonizing adolescent abuse. Luckily, with a little help from his comic book heroes, Finster survives his travails and ends up with the girl of his reality.

THE BIG BOOK OF BAD
Things go from bad to worse in this compendium of the best of the worst of practically everything! An array of comics' most talented artists — Eddie Campbell, Joe Sacco, Phil Jimenez, Colleen Doran, Darick Robertson and many more — turn their attentions to legendarily terrible "bad guys" (both real and fictional), artists, scientific movements, places, and historical events.
Under the premise that Bizarro, Superman's moronic blockheaded doppelganger, has decided to publish his own comic book stories, this hardcover edition presents an irreverent collection of spiteful super hero tales. Taking shots at Batman, Wonder Woman, and the Green Lantern, this rare and hilarious sarcastic look at the super hero world includes comical tales of the search for a babysitter for a young Superman, Supergirl and Mary Marvel's troubles finding a good man, and the Man of Steel's hopeless battle with a Superman-hating creature dwelling on an orbiting space station.
