Summary

Over the years, the companies have deployed an arsenal of schemes in an attempt to outmanoeuvre the competition, whether it be stealing ideas, poaching employees, planting spies, ripping off characters or launching price wars. Sometimes the feud has been vicious, at other times, more cordial. But it has never completely disappeared, and it simmers on a low boil to this day.

This is the story of the greatest corporate rivalry never told. Other books have revealed elements of the Marvel-DC battle, but this will be the first audiobook to put it all together into a single, juicy narrative. It will also serve as an alternate history of the superhero, told through the lens of these two publishers.

Marvelous

Great and interesting history of the comic world we have all come to know and love. So many examples of deals and characters that made the industry

An interesting listen but nothing new

This was a decent enough listen, but for someone in the know on their comics history, this was a bit boring as it goes over the same ground covered by many other comic history books that came before.

The voice acting was ok but his impersonations for others were bad, especially Alan Moore who he portrayed as a posh speaking toff

I recommend Sean Howe’s ‘untold history of Marvel Comics’ over this. But that has one of the most annoying readers of all time so you’re screwed there too
