Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everything you could want from a Marvel encyclopedia This book is truly the uber-guide to have if you're a fan of Marvel comics at all. Almost every single superhero/villain/team/supporting character from the Marvel universe gets their due in this book, along with a brief picture, biography, and list of powers and first appearances. I did find some exceptions to this rule; newer characters, of course, but also popular ones such as the Runaways or the Young Avengers were missing, which I found somewhat disappointing. Still, a great reference.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome book! Excellent book for even the most casual of comic book fans! My only complaint is that the book doesn't go into great enough depth with some pretty major characters--only gives us small blurbs about them. For example, Silver Surfer: he's so cool, played a huge part in key events in the Marvel universe, yet only two sentences about him?! It's a gripe only a hardcore comic fan would have, I'd think. Excellent book!
