The DC Vault - Martin Pasko, Paul Levitz - Running Press [$49.95]

You don’t have to be a comics lover to delight in this slice of American pop culture history—Depression era entertainment, anyone?—but the comics lover in your life will totally geek out on this collection of artwork (from sketches to full, gorgeous renditions), depictions of products (Superman undies for boys, decoder rings), and events (Superman Day and Valentine’s Day, 1940), and DC trivia (25 accessible archivale pieces stored in clear plastic cases). Billed as a “museum-in-a-book” with rare collectibles, a modern reader will feel the ghosts of enthusiasts past looking over their shoulders—oh, wait, that’s your kid, scooching in next to you to get a look. Best make room on the couch when you open this one.
