Read my lips

I've got some great books to recommend to my lovely follower(s).  If you have any interest in comics, may I suggest an interesting look at the uproar caused in the late forties in The Ten-cent Plague: The Great Comic Book Scare and How it Changed America by David Hadju, as well as the three volume series Encyclopedia of Comic Book Heroes by Michael Fleisher, featuring Batman, Wonder Woman, and Superman.  For further reading on Wonder Woman and a host of other heroines and villainesses, check out DC Comics Covergirls by Louise Simonson.  If you'd rather dive into a study of graphic design, pick up Pop: How Graphic Design Shapes Popular Culture by Steven Heller, a magnificent authority on the subject of graphic design who's written hundreds of essays and even helped to found some new areas of the industry, including Design Literacy.

Find these and other fantastic titles below:
