Quirk Books will publish the DC Comics 75th Anniversary Poster Book in October, collecting what it says is the most memorable DC comic covers from its history.

The covers detail DC's history from the first appearance of Superman and Batman in Action Comics and Detective Comics, respectively, to the more illustrative approach of the company's more literary Vertigo titles. Some have aged well and remain exciting or stylish, others now look unintentionally camp or even ridiculous. Even so, it's an inspiring guide to the rich heritage of DC Comics.

Here's a quick sample of the art inside.
