Together again for the first time, here come the greatest comic book superheroes ever assembled between two covers: down from the heavens - Superman and the Mighty Thor - or swinging over rooftops - the Batman and Spider-Man; star-spangled, like Captain America and Wonder Woman, or clad in darkness, like the Shadow and Spawn; facing down super-villains on their own, like the Flash and the Punisher or gathered together in a team of champions, like the Avengers and the X-Men!

Featuring more than 500 full-color comic book panels, covers, sketches, photographs of both essential and rare artwork, Superheroes is the definitive story of this powerful presence in pop culture.

Les questions cons

Dans la vie, tout le monde se pose des questions. Il y a celles qui sont intelligentes, qui font réfléchir : c'est quoi un atome ? Comment sortir de la crise ? Et puis il y a les autres, celles qu'on se pose tout bas sans parfois même se l'avouer :

Pourquoi ne voit-on jamais de bébés pigeons ?
Combien y a-t-il de grains dans un paquet de riz ?
Les poissons dorment-ils ?

Si, pour flatter leur ego, certains ne veulent répondre qu'aux questions intelligentes, qui va répondre aux questions cons ? Moi, bien sûr ! J'en ai même fait mon métier ! Découvrez mes expériences - parfois farfelues - et surtout cultivez-vous au travers de mes réponses...pas toujours si cons que ça ! Hugo
