“I’ll bet we could do this.”
With those words to his pal Curly, Steve launches the pair's lives on a roller-coaster ride. In 1938, comic books are so new that the first superheroes haven't appeared yet. Even high school kids, Steve says, could do a better job than some of the writers and artists whose stories they've been reading.
From disaster to triumph to fresh disaster, writer Steve and artist Curly take a wild trip behind the scenes of the early four-color adventures. Steve is sure they'll be remembered as kings of the comic book creators; but history—and you—will have to judge.
