"As colorful as the characters you see in halftone every Wednesday on New Comics Day."--Pittsburgh Post-Gazette "This really is a fascinating story, especially when you remember that the competition between DC and Marvel isn't just about comic books; it's about pop culture itself."--Booklist "Lively and engaging."--Weekly Standard "Slugfest takes readers inside the decades-long beef between DC and Marvel comics."--Newsweek "Tucker delivers a well-written and entertaining look at the decades-long battle between the two titans of the comic book business."--Publishers Weekly "A great read for anyone interested in the history of two companies that have had a massive impact on pop culture."--Library Journal "Tucker uses extensive interviews with major players within the two comics giants to provide a blow-by-blow account of its victories and defeats."--Shelf Awareness for Readers "The story of Marvel's David toppling DC's Goliath is a fun one, and Tucker tells it well."--Associated Press "Insanely readable...An amazing comic-book story."--Houston Press "If you think comics are squeaky clean, you have no idea how down and dirty things have gotten behind the brightly colored scenes. Slugfest pulls back the curtain on the tireless work, masterful art, smack talk, underhanded tactics, and juicy betrayals that have both blessed and plagued the rivalry of a lifetime. It's meticulously researched and delightfully scandalous, like the lovechild of an encyclopedia and a soap opera. It's an Encyclopera. Which also happens to be my super hero name."--AJ Mendez, retired WWE superstar and New York Times bestselling author of Crazy Is My Superpower "Slugfest is the ringside commentator for the clash of the comic book titans. A must-read for all comic fans."--Scott Sigler, author of the #1 New York Times bestselling novel Alive "This is a book for 'Fans.' I consider myself a 'Fan.' I love this book. I guess you could say I am a 'Fan' of this book. If you are not a 'Fan' of 'Things' then this is not a book for you. It is a book for me. GIVE ME BACK MY BOOK!"--Bobby Moynihan, comedian and former Saturday Night Live cast member "Reed Tucker masterfully dissects the REAL issue dividing us as a nation."--Seth Meyers, host of NBC's Late Night with Seth Meyers "A smart, blow-by-blow narrative of the sometimes-friendly, often bitter rivalry between corporate comic-book behemoths...A wild haymaker for the masses, perhaps, but a knockout read for capes-and-cowls aficionados."--Kirkus
