5.0 out of 5 stars Marvel encyclopedia NEW EDITION. A definitive guide to the characters of Marvel Comics.
By TheManFromACRONYM on 27 May 2019
This volume is a massive oversized hardback edition containing a whopping 447 pages absolutely crammed with information about every Marvel hero, villain, team, and event you could possibly want to know about, and is bang up to date and accurate up until the beginning of 2019.

Everyone gets their own entry and it covers everything from major characters like Captain America, Iron-Man, and Thor, to up-and-coming characters like Captain Marvel, to the less known or even the utterly obscure (hey, you want to read about Bi-Beast or Triathlon, they're right here!).

Bigger characters get several pages dedicated to their long histories, where as lesser known characters may get half a page or just a couple of inches. Each character has a biography and image(s), as well as information on their powers, height, weight, first appearance etc.

The closest I could get to a complaint is that if you already own the previous volume that was released just a few years ago, then you're obviously going to get a lot less out of this one than if this is the first time you've picked one of these editions up because not all of the characters here have been used in the interim period and so a lot of the information here hasn't changed from the previous editions. Additionally there is no information on the hugely successful Marvel movies - this volume is dedicated entirely to the comics that inspired those movies.

Other than that however this is a faultless piece of work that should delight any real fan of Marvel, it's characters, and their stories!

3.0 out of 5 stars Great book, arrived in poor condition
By Jennifer on 27 May 2019
The book itself looks amazing. Just gutted at the state it turned up in. Some pages were bent and it was ripped at the beginning of the book (as pictured). Luckily this book is for me and not a gift or I'd have had to have sent it back.
