Review: I'm going to keep this a short review. As you probably realise by now I'm a huge geek and I'm a huge fan of superheros. Despite this I had only ever watched the films and never read the comics. I wanted a book that would allow me to learn about other relevant characters without reading hundreds of comics. This is where I found this book, well actually my mother bought it for me as a surprise. I totally geeked out when I saw it.
The book itself is full of great images and drawings of the characters each bright and clear. I loved looking at new characters and seeing how they got their powers. It's full of the basic history of many Marvel characters. They give you basic information and a bit of history which is all a new fan needs to get a feel of the new characters. The book is incredibly well laid out, it would be a great read for all ages. It's simply laid out which makes the book even more impressive. It's a great start for someone looking to learn more, even long turn fans will be able to get something out of this book. I really loved this and will now look for more character guides!
