taschen-dc-comics-art-modern-mythmaking-eisner-awardWhat can happen when you put together a good book company with good content? Probably good things, right? Well, if you put together Taschen and DC Comics you get a book like “75 Years of DC Comics: The Art of Modern Mythmaking“; a book that received the 2011 Eisner Comic Industry Award for Best Comics-Related Book of the Year.

Often called the “Oscars” or the “National Book Awards” of the comics industry, the 23rd Annual Eisner Awards were held last Friday night July 22 at this year’s Comic-Con International in San Diego, California, the largest comic book and popular arts event in the Western Hemisphere.

Special congratulations go to writer Paul Levitz, former president and publisher of DC Comics, who accepted his first Eisner award on behalf of the book, as well as Taschen Art Director Josh Baker, DC Comics editor Steve Korte, Taschen editor Nina Wiener, and all the members of the DC Comics and Taschen staff who worked on the book.

You can get the book online.
