    Though it was published a while ago this guide from Les Daniels is very informative I learned a lot about Marvel and i did not know a lot of things I enjoyed the parts about the X men Ghost Rider and X factor the best but they were all amazing

    This was given me by a sister who only vaguely understands that I like comics so figured this'd do for me I do not however like superhero comics in general and haven't had a fondness at all for Marvel since I was a kid But I thought it was high time I read this and its DC counterpartIt's not bad The writing is solid informative and snappy though just a bit too cheerleadery overall to make this an effective unbiased history of the company For someone with a slightly than passing interest in THE major comic publisher of the past many decades though this is an adeuate overview of how it got where it is today Also included are one page profiles of some of the bigger superhero characters which are interesting because they make a vague attempt to explain the appeal and psychology of the characters than offering the standard Marvel Universe history of them

    A sneak peek inside the creation of Marvel comics over 50 years The origins of comics and the fact that so few people were involved in the creation of their characters based on the franchise of today Stan Lee is a bad dude I was reading comics in the early eighties when Wolverine and the X men were getting their first taste of notoriety and to see the characters from the perspective of writer and penciler is awesome Seems like a fun ride creating the Fantastic Four and Spiderman and having to constantly re ceate as the times change I still read comics and this book helps me to understand how some of the Marvel characters influenced my life


  7. Alex Andrasik Alex Andrasik says:

    Yes this book is basically a big advertisement for Marvel Comics But for a gawky preteen still in awe of the color and action and humanity of the books this was like discovering the Bible for the first time if you're into that kinda thing For the first time I had all in one place the origins of every major figure in the universe as well as at least a thumbnail of the creative and business process going on behind them It was thrilling and I still fondly thumb these pages now and then to relive that thrill Best probably to be read for the first time at about that early age


  8. Charlie Curran Charlie Curran says:

    A beautiful coffee table book that gives a full history of Marvel Comics up to the early 1990s It does gloss over controversial elements of Marvel's history such as the Jim Shooter era and also the company's treatment of the likes of Jack Kirby and Steve Ditko but for anyone interested in the company it's a treat with plenty of full colour illustrations but has it really been a uarter of a century since the thing came out? How time flies


  9. Jon Jon says:

    It's good covering the history of Marvel comics from its beginning to 1991 publication date As a result it's a little dated and so misses much of the depressing parts of comics history like the collapse of the direct market Marvel's bankruptcy and of course Rob Liefield But it's very pretty and if you're interested in comics history well worth the read


  10. Cindy Cindy says:

    I really enjoyed this book and getting to learn about Marvel throughout the 20th century and their policy of Just throw titlescharacters out there One of 'em's got to be a winner It was just need to get to see how the comics have evolved and it was a great way to dive right into the Marvel culture especially when you don't know as much as you'd like Also Stan Lee is just adorable
