No one has told the story of comic art in its own medium, until now. In Masterful Marks, top illustrators reveal how sixteen visionary cartoonists overcame massive financial, political, and personal... challenges to create a new form of art that now defines our world. Superhero comics didn't exist until two teenagers from Cleveland created the first superhero of all time: Superman. Advertising artist Theodor Geisel released his first book in 1937 as Dr. Seuss, and children's literature was never the same. Charles M. Schulz's perseverance and passion gave the world Peanuts, the world's most famous comic strip. Featuring these tales, and profiling other giants, Masterful Marks illustrates how graphic storytelling became such a rich and popular medium.
