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.
What do you get when you mix some of the most innovative comics creators of today with the bright, shiny super-heroes of the DC Universe?You get...BIZARRO COMICS, of course!
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.
Where else could the world's greatest alternative cartoonists run rampant through the DC Universe in an all-new anthology of utterly unhinged stories and art? It could only happen in the BIZARRO WORLD! This big slab o' comics features work by many of the fantastic creators who worked on the BIZARRO COMICS book (and made it an award-winner)!
