Finished : Men of Tomorrow : Geeks, Gangsters, and the Birth of the Comic Book (by Gerard Jones)

It was quite interesting, particularly the early bits, since they described the Jewish immigration and life in New York at the turn of the century. It got a bit long in the middle stretch about Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, the creators of Superman and their long battle to resure their rights to the man of steel. In fact, I guess I was more interested in the side issues and context than anything else. Gangsters, prohibition, body building, etc... Pre-WW2 america, really. Location : Beauvais, France
