What I’m reading this week – Superfolks


Written in 1977, this is a seminal deconsrutuction of superheroes…and I’d never heard of it till I picked it up in a remaindered book store for a couple of bucks. But big names like Stan Lee, ,Paul Dini, Grant Morrison and Kurt Busiek love it. The latter two say it changed the way they wrote comics and feel like it influenced how the industry viewed superheroes through the 80s and 90s.
