Showing my geeky side here, but I’m reading ‘Marvel Comics: The Untold Story’ by Sean Howe. A really comprehensive look at the history of Marvel from way back before World War 2, up to the present day. A lot of focus on the likes of Stan ‘The Man’ Lee, Jack Kirby et al on the early days so far, but since they created it all you’d expect that. Basically the lesson I’m learning so far is that a lot of people who created this stuff just didn’t get their due.
If you like comics (or the history of publishing actually), you’ll get a real kick out of it. Not come across one boring section of the book yet, it’s a real readable style the author has. I’ll go back to my batcave now (I know that’s DC by the way!)
