Marvel Vs DC

For over the past 10 years Marvel and DC Comics Hollywood productions became more and more famous all over the world. In the US, comic superheroes are a part of the culture, since the early 40’s, Americans and Canadians had comic book stores and are reading them but French are more familiar with “BD” such as Tintin, Asterix & Obelix, Lucky Luke, The Smurfs… in France, comics superheroes cultures didn’t spread as well as in America, of course, French could watch the 1965 American TV series “Adventures of Superman” but not before the end of the 80’s .

In France, Marvel and DC Comics found it’s public by the 80’s and 90’s thanks to TV series and TV animated series and intended to be watched by kids and young adults. Back in the 90’s I don’t remember comic books being a trend but Spider-Man, Super-Man, Batman and X-Men animated TV series were watched by a lot of kids and teenagers. Also, we didn’t have access to the whole Marvel and DC Universe ’cause comic books were hard to find and it could be the reason why today a lot of people are lost with all those superheroes.

That’s why I’m sharing with you two great websites if you want to catch up and fill some gaps:

  • The first one is dedicated to the Marvel Universe. You’ll find a lot of information about characters and comics books. It also informs you about everything that is linked to Marvel, movies, series, events etc…
  • The second one is dedicated to the DC Universe and you find the same kind of information but this one is more focused on the comics books

For people who want more and really want to dive into the universe of comic books, I give you this little gift I’m sure you gonna love it!
