Click the Bleeding Cool logo for Dan “The Death of Superman” Jurgens’ interview with Comic Book Babylon author Clifford Meth.

Never one to pull punches, author Clifford Meth takes the wraps off of his highly anticipated tell-all that’s been a decade in the making. You’ll find Stan Lee speaking frankly about Jack Kirby, Alan Moore speaking frankly about everyone, and, after a decade of silence, Clifford’s telling of the real story of Dave Cockrum’s missing royalties. This brutal and often hysterical page-turner opens with an introduction from Stan Lee and is beautifully illustrated by Michael Netzer.

 But…What are the critics saying?

  • Big Think “Dig deep into Comic Book Babylon’s darkness and you’ll find a glimmer of hope. Just as Meth’s dark, often disturbing fiction (which I once reviewed here) can strike a humanist note if you listen closely enough, his advice to true believers will restore your faith in comics, heroes, and people.” – Bob Duggan
  • Booksteve’s Library “It’s a story of heroes and villains and victims and survivors. And Meth doesn’t hesitate for one second to name names.   …If you’re a genuinely grown-up comics fan who doesn’t view that world with rose-colored glasses, Booksteve recommends!”  – Steven Thompson
  • Comics Bulletin “Prior to Comic Book Babylon, with the exception of the occasional random column, I had really only read Clifford Meth’s fiction. I’m a big fan of such works as Wearing the Horns and god’s 15 Minutes. His non-fiction did not disappoint.” – Jack Abramowitz
  • Fanboy Planet “Comic Book Babylon is an important book. It’s a record of some of the giants of the industry — too many of whom have passed on while being passed over by comics fans. And yet, on their shoulders stand those who run comics now.” – Derek McCaw
  • myreviewer.com ” I cannot recommend [Comic Book Babylon] enough. Your small part in the process of improvement for comic artists and writers would certainly be to pick up a copy, and discover just how unforgiving an industry it can be.” – Michael Campbell
