Book Launch: Douglas Wolk presents All of the Marvels: A Journey to the Ends of the Biggest Story Ever Told
In conversation with Evan Narcisse

Comics writer, critic, and author of the Eisner Award-winning Reading Comics Douglas Wolk has read all 27,000+ Marvel superhero comics and lived to tell the tale in his formidable new book All of the Marvels. In this first-ever full reckoning with Marvel Comics’ interconnected, half-million-page-and-counting story, Wolk travels from Alpha Flight to Omega the Unknown and shapes the mammoth Marvel narrative into a prism through which to view the landscape of American culture—a fun-house-mirror history of the past sixty years. Joining the Greenlight virtual stage with Evan Narcisse, prolific video game journalist and author of Rise of the Black Panther, Wolk presents a revelatory work of cultural exegesis and a huge treat for Marvel fans and newcomers alike.

Wolk sees fascinating patterns--the rise and fall of particular cultural aspirations, and of the storytelling modes that conveyed them. He observes the Marvel story's progressive visions and its painful stereotypes, its patches of woeful hackwork and stretches of luminous creativity, and the way it all feeds into a potent cosmology that echoes our deepest hopes and fears.

The first-ever full reckoning with Marvel Comics' interconnected, half-million-page story, a revelatory guide to the "epic of epics"--and to the past sixty years of American culture--from a beloved authority on the subject who read all 27,000+ Marvel superhero comics and lived to tell the tale

Witness the early years of the man who will come to rule one of the most scientifically advanced countries in the world! Wakanda has always kept itself isolated from Western society, but that's all about to change. Young T'Challa knows he is destined to become king, but when his father is brutally murdered by outsiders, he'll find himself taking up a mantle he may not be ready for.
