Required reading for all comic book geeks, Brian Cronin's weekly column Comic Book Legends Revealed educates and enlightens the trivial aspects of comic book history. Was Superman A Spy? collects 65 of Cronin's columns plus an additional 65 pieces written for this book. Dividing the book into three parts (DC, Marvel, and Other Companies), Cronin introduces and demystifies legends involving many of the industry's giants—both creations and creators. Sadly, Was Superman A Spy? lacks an index. Often missing notations, the picture reproductions are of poor quality. Inexcusable for a publishing house the size of Plume, the book is littered with misspellings and typos. Despite these flaws, Was Superman A Spy? stands as a unique book for the comic book fan and will be enjoyed by anyone with an even passing interest in the medium.

This one is better than his other book, [b:Why Does Batman Carry Shark Repellent?: And Other Amazing Comic Book Trivia!|13543033|Why Does Batman Carry Shark Repellent? And Other Amazing Comic Book Trivia!|Brian Cronin|https://d202m5krfqbpi5.cloudfront.net/books/1331863992s/13543033.jpg|19107327]. It got more in depth with the information presented. Still reads like a bunch of blog entries (which is what it is), but it's an excellent bathroom reader for folks who like comic trivia.

Fun nuggets of comic book trivia. It's got something for almost everybody. Deep history for the hardcore fan; fun stuff for the casual fan.
Sometimes it had me question whether an entry was really worth my time, but I also ended up with a list of comics I'd like to track down and read. It might not have been QUITE as interesting as I hoped, but I'm a pretty picky long time comic junkie, so I set the bar pretty high.

I really enjoyed this book and think it could have been longer, some of the stories mentioned I had heard before but quite a few I hadn't
Great book
