Lavishly illustrated with thousands of charts, checklists and color photographs, Mego 8" Super-Heroes is an obsessive examination of legendary toy company Mego (pronounced "ME-go"), and the extraordinary line of super-hero action figures that dominated the toy industry throughout the 1970s. Featuring a chronological history of Mego, interviews with former employees and Mego vendors, fascinating discoveries never revealed elsewhere, and thorough coverage of each figure and packaging variant, this full-color hardcover is the definitive guide to Mego. Brad Meltzer, New York Times-bestselling author and writer of DC’s Justice League of America raves, "I’ve waited thirty years for this magical, beautiful book." And Chip Kidd, internationally-recognized graphic designer and author of Batman Collected, deemed it "a stunning visual experience." Written by Benjamin Holcomb.
