Pavilion Books, Oct 21, 2004 - Art - 376 pages

A companion to '500 Great Comicbook Action Heroes', '500 Comicbook Villains' takes a look at the dark side of the coin. It turns the spotlight on the fiendish foes without whom those fearless champions of justice and defenders of freedom would have no one to test their mettle against; nothing to give their existence meaning and substance.

A veritable Who’s Who of comicdom’s criminal elite, '500 Comicbook Villains' features an awe-inspiring line-up of the best (or should that be the worst?) bad guys (and girls!) ever to commit a crime on the comic's page. Learn of the doers of dastardly deeds, the malevolent megalo-maniacs, the evil emperors, the mischievous miscreants and the would-be world conquerors. While some have dedicated their lives to evil, some simply enjoy a bit of mayhem and chaos and others are just plain bad ... or mad.

User Review  - Bluechew - LibraryThing

Pretty decent book, fairly irreverent look at the subject matter. It's not a book if you are looking for in depth character studies but does include a lot of the more obscure baddies from English comics, especially 2000AD. Read full review
