Book Review: The Marvel Vault & The DC Vault
New text and images chronicle how Marvel has channelled its singular storytelling into a blockbuster movie studio, even as it has stayed true to its hallowed roots in the comics world. No current Talk conversations about this book. Colorful book presents a very concise history of Marvel Comics. This book is not all about its cool reproductions, the text is pretty good with a balanced if not detailed look at the comics company through the decades.
Ferre Sep 28, Included in this volume are tons of reproduced memorabilia which you can take out of their plastic pages and peruse, making you feel like you've been there every step of the way. I just wish the sections had been longer, but these are not the comics most Marvel fans want to learn about, so I'm not surprised it was very small in the information expanded on. I also wish that there had been more pieces of memorabilia, but I realize that would have made the book longer and more pricey.

This is a lovely gift for Marvel fanatics and those who just want a fun, hands-on history of one of the biggest comic publishing companies of all time! The information can get a bit dry at times, but overall it is a fantastic read and experience! Four stars! MeganAngela May 3, Excellent book on the history of marvel comics and the people who create it!

Very hands-on. Interesting though these Marvelous Mementos may be and to be honest, I expected more of 'em , the book itself turns out to offer far more. Seven decades is a lot to fit in, particularly once the big guns arrive in the 60s, but Marvel veterans Thomas and Sanderson do an excellent job of balancing basic information for new readers with fascinating behind-the-scenes insight for those, like me, who have already read a dozen or more books or articles on the history of the word's greatest comics company.

What's great is that it not only gives you an in depth look at what was going on in the Spider-Man canon, but also giving some more background information about how Spider-Man was growing in pop culture as well. The book almost had me tear by the time I got to the end. You must log in or sign up to post here.
