Image for Superhero Comics And Books Action Comics #1, published in 1938, introduced a new character to the world and heralded in the era of Superheroes as we know them today. His name was Superman!

There was soon a whole comic book industry creating men, women and even animals who possessed an unimaginable array of superpowers. They were riding and flying high.

Coinciding with the end of World War II, superhero comics suffered a dip in sales. Other genres became popular. Crime, horror and romance became the biggest sellers. But over time, the superhero has recovered to yet again be the biggest comic book genre. Plus, as we all know superheroes have recently featured in a multitude of blockbusting films.

Unfortunately for this site, Superman, Spiderman and Batman are very much copyrighted. However, our massive collection of public domain superheroes are even more interesting and even Kryptonite cannot keep them from our grasp.

We have 173 titles and 3,408 issues in our 'Superhero Category' for you to enjoy.
