Founded in 1934 as National Allied Publications, the company that would one day become DC Comics virtually created the comic book, publishing the first comic of all-original material. In the spring of 1938, the first superhero story appeared in Action Comics #1, introducing Superman. Other soon-to-be icons would follow. Today, DC Comics publishes more than 80 titles a month and close to 1000 issues a year and is the largest and most diverse English-language publisher of comic books in the world.
