Marvel & DC Comics Little Golden Books

• $3-4

It seems almost sacrilegious to see the beloved Little Golden Books  series expand to modern characters like the Marvel & DC comic book characters, but I can't help but be drawn in by the faithfully rendered illustrations. They're a good introduction to the superhero universe and these character's backstories without being too dark or frightening.
