Superheroes continue to be a booming business and pop-culture titans. They fell out of favor in the 1950s, though, and were nearly extinct until the appearance of a revamped Flash in 1956, the year considered to be the start of the Silver Age of comic books. Rise of the Superheroes is a fun illustrated history to the best titles and characters from the Silver Age (1956-1970), the era that redefined and immortalized superheroes as the massively huge pop-culture icons they have become for decades.
