An amalgamation of superheroes and what built the House of Ideas
Taschen is well established as the coffee-table and art book collector go-to, but they will really be turning heads, as well as pages, with this mega-Marvel-ous collection that captures the now 75-year history of Marvel comics and its characters. At 720 pages, the book covers everything from Avengers to X-men with nearly 2,000 images that range from vintage comics to behind-the-scenes stills to original original artwork, a four-foot fold-out timeline and a good 300 biographies of the creatives and contributors who have been involved.Written by Roy Thomas who was reigned as editor-and-chief for Marvel Comics and now rules as perhaps the world’s greatest comic-book connoisseur, this 11.4″ x 15.6″ hardcover is well worth $200.
