        This is a great reference for people who have not read any comics and are into the Marvel cinematic Movies. Every character has his own page with a great description and back story.
        Makes a great gift for both avid readers and just movie buffs.
        The illustration work is fantastic too!

            It was better than i thought it was
            the quality and the depth information on every character in Marvel.
            it is very heavy but worth every bit.
            Highly recommended for gifts!

                I bought this as a gift for my husband, who's a massive Marvel fan, and he LOVED it. We actually already had the previous version but this had enough extra material to justify buying the new edition.
